Gunmen abducts Delta NUT treasurer



A group of kidnappers have reportedly abducted the treasurer of the Delta State branch of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Mr. Titus Okotie.

Okotie, who is vying for the state chairmanship seat in the forthcoming NUT election, was kidnapped by unknown gunmen along the Kwale and Ozoro axis of the Ughelli-Asaba Expressway on Friday morning.



Sources told our correspondent that the victim was travelling with his daughter to Ughelli from Asaba, the state capital, when his vehicle was ambushed by his abductors about 8am on Friday.

A source said the kidnappers forcibly took their victim and left behind his car and the daughter.

It was however not clear as of the time of filing this report if Okotie’s abductors had established contact with the victim’s family.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the abduction but added that a crack team had been deployed to ensure he is rescued unhurt.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
