Gunmen shot businessman, abduct wife in Kogi

A dealer in building materials, Chinwe Obi, has been shot and his wife, Rosemary, abducted by suspected gunmen in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.

The couple were said to be on their way home after closing from work when the incident occurred at Peace Community junction.

It was learnt that the gunmen had trailed Obi and shot at his car, forcing him to stop.

They were said to have taken his wife and left him behind in the vehicle with the injuries he sustained while struggling with them.

Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP William Aya, said the command was on the trail of the kidnappers.

Aya also said the Commissioner of Police, Edward Eboka, visited the scene of the incident and assured that the perpetrators would be fished out.

He, however, called on anyone with useful information to contact the police.
