A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and leader of the party in Edo South Senatorial District, Owere Dickson Imasogie has been reported kidnapped alongside his driver.

The incident was said to have happened around 7 am Monday morning.

A source close to the family said “He was kidnapped in his farm around Obada area in Uhunmwonde local government area. He was with his driver when the incident happened.”

As of the time of filing this report, the police is yet to confirm or make any statement on the development but a group of Edo State Decide Movement in a statement called on the state governor, Godwin Obaseki to rescue the old man.

The statement reads “We are just informed that our daddy, mentor and a renowned philanthropist whose philanthropic gesture is indeed exceptional in the person of Sir Chief Dickson Imasogie ( EDO SOUTH PDP LEADER) and others have just been kidnapped on their way to the farm this morning along Benin Agbor road.

 “As a matter of urgency, we call on the state governor  GODWIN OBASEKI to take a drastic action as to rescue the father to all and others from the hands of the hoodlums or kidnappers who are enemies of progress in our dear state.”

Meanwhile, the Coalition of Registered Political Parties (CRPP) has condemned the kidnapping of the PDP chieftain and called on Governor Obaseki to rise up to the challenge of checking insecurity in the state.

Chairman of CRPP, Dr Samson Isibor said “It came to us like a thunderbolt, we didn’t expect that. We are asking the governor to swing into action and rescue this old man

He is a man that has helped the state to grow, he has helped the state to develop so leaving him in the hands of the kidnappers is terrible and it is sending wrong signals to outsiders.

"We have been crying that the state government should do something about these kidnappings across the state. We have been particularly shouting that the government should check the activities of these herdsmen around Obada and Urhuokosa areas but we have seen any action.

 “Just when did we hear of the killing of the younger brother of Omoyele Sowore and now this is happening. On behalf of the political parties, we are calling on the good people of Edo state to rally round and save this man from the hands of the kidnappers.”

A family source said no contact has been made with the family as at the time of filing this report and when contacted by the Police Public Relations (PPRO), Kontongs Bello said he was expecting field reports from the police in the area.
