A man, believed to be a contractor has been abducted by three armed men while standing by a road construction site at Obomkpa, Delta State.

Eye witnesses said the three armed men stormed the road construction site and started shooting sporadically before abducting the individual.

Confirming the incident, the Aniocha North Local Government Chairman, Chucks Oseme condemned the act, describing it as wicked.

The incident occurred just a night before the Governor’s official visit to the Aniocha North and South Local Governments as part of activities to mark his second year in office.

Although details of the abduction are still sketchy, eye witness accounts say the incident occurred at about 5.30pm when the contractor was awaiting materials to continue the 6.6 kilometres road construction work from Idumu Ogo to Obomkpa.

There are also indications that various vigilante groups in the area have been mobilised by the Aniocha North council Chairman and they are expected to comb the bushes in hope of rescuing the kidnapped contractor.
