Frederick Shaibu, the brother of the Comrade Philip Shaibu, the Edo State Deputy Governor, has been kidnapped.

According to Tribune, he was kidnapped on Monday by gunmen, while on a school at Aruogba area, Irhiri, Benin City.

Tribune Online gathered that the younger Shaibu was kidnapped at about 7 am, while the gun-toting kidnappers left his children in the car, bewildered.

Irhiri, where the kidnapping took place, is a few metres away from the Ogba Zoo, where Mr Osa Ehanire, manager of the zoo and younger brother to the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, was kidnapped sometimes ago, with the Ogba River serving as the getaway route for the men of the underworld, operating with speed boats.

A family source who confirmed the incident on condition of anonymity disclosed that the kidnappers “attacked him and took him away. It happened at around 7 am when he was going to drop his children in school. The children were left by the gunmen and they took their father away. But the incident has been reported to security agencies, they have not made any contact with the family.”

“It is believed that the kidnappers came through the river because people who saw the incident said they went through the bushes in that area that leads to the riverside. Security agencies have been informed and they are doing everything possible to ensure that he is released unhurt and be reunited with his family,” The family source revealed.

But when contacted yesterday, the Edo State Police Command Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Chidi Nwabuzor, said he was yet to get the full briefing of the incident.

“I am not aware of this development yet but I will find out and get back to you,” the Police spokesman promised.
