Unknown gunmen numbering four said to be from Directorate Security Services (DSS) operatives have whisked away Jones Abiri to undisclosed location.

Abiri, the publisher of Weekly Source Newspaper who was incarcerated by the Federal Government for two years on charges of terrorism, was whisked away about 4:30pm Saturday.

According to eyewitness account, Abiri was chatting with collegues at his office at Azikoro junction of Yenagoa when the armed men came in white Hilux and black Prado jeep dragged and forcefully pushed into one of the vehicles and drove off.

Austin Bodo, journalist who witnessed the incident said "we were sitting outside his office when a black Prado jeep and white Hilux drove into the premises in commando style.

"As they packed, two men carrying the type of gun DSS operatives use, jumped out of one of the cars and said you are under arrest and immediately started dragging him and forced him into one of the cars and drove off."

Another witness, Mr. Bankole Abdulazeez, said "we were discussing national issues when the cars drove in. Two armed men came out of the cars and without identifying themselves, they said you are under arrest and started dragging him.

"They threatened to shoot anybody that tries to stop them. I heard him shouting 'what have I done again? what have I done again? Before they finally dragged him into one of the cars and drove off."
