Gunmen have reportedly kidnapped a stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and party secretary in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, Mr. Amadi Osaronu.
Osaronu was abducted by gunmen dressed in police uniforms from his residence in Aluu, Ikwerre LGA on Wednesday.
The State APC Publicity Secretary, Darlington Nwauju, confirmed the incident on Thursday
“No amount of intimidation and arm-twisting will change the outcome of the March 18 which would be a resounding defeat for the Peoples Democratic Party,” he said.
This comes barely 24 hours after the Accord Party candidate for the Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni sin Local Government Area Constituency 2 in the Rivers State House of Assembly for the March 18 election, Chukwudi Ogbonna was also kidnapped by gunmen.
Ogbonna was reportedly kidnaped while driving in his car at Rumuigbo, near Port Harcourt on Monday night when the gunmen forced him to stop and whisked him away with his car.
