Suspected gunmen have kidnapped Emmanuel Agbale, commissioner for science and technology, in Edo state.

The Edo police command confirmed the abduction on Saturday.

Chidi Nwabuzor, the command’s public relations officer, said Agbale was abducted by yet-to-be-identified kidnappers on Friday evening by Ogbemudia farm, along the Benin-Auchi road in the Ehor divisional jurisdiction.

He was said to have been travelling from Benin to Ekpoma when the gunmen ambushed his car, shooting directly at the vehicle.

Nwabuzor said the police orderly attached to Agbele was shot dead by the kidnappers before he was whisked away.

His driver, however, was said to have escaped.

He added that the force has commenced an investigation into the abduction.

“It was the driver who now contacted and reported the development to the police,” Nwabuzor said

“However, we have swung into action, and investigation and search have commenced so that the official is not only released but to also ensure that the abductors are apprehended.”
