The wife and the son of the former Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, ZakaWanu Garuba, have been kidnapped in Kogi.

Our correspondent gathered that they were travelling from Abuja enroute Auchi, Edo State when they ran into the kidnappers along Lokoja/Abuja Road.

The victims and Garuba’s driver were said to be on their way to Auchi in Edo State, apparently in connection with the earlier news of Garuba’s death, earlier in the day.

He said he got information about a kidnap incident around Okene, but could not confirm the exact situation.

“Yes, I heard of a kidnap incident around Okene and, I have sent my policemen to the area to ascertain the correct position of things. I do not know what exactly happened, so I cannot confirm what I don’t know. My men have gone there already,” said the CP.

The late former speaker’s wife, mother, and driver it was gathered were on their way to the hometown of the deceased when the incident occurred. Their abductors were said to have let go of the mother while his wife and son were whisked away.

The Police public relations officer DSP William Aya later told newsmen that immediately they got the information, “our men immediately swung into action and three victims were rescued but could not confirm the identity of those rescued”.
