FRESH facts have emerged on the abduction of the Bayelsa State Commissioner for Trade and Commerce, Mr Federal Otokito Oparminola, on Thursday night.
Investigation revealed that the Commissioner was at his wife’s residence in the village when the daredevil gunmen struck.
A source said that the gunmen stormed the riverine Otuokpoti community in Ogbia Local Government Area from the creek.
It was learned that on getting to the house, the gunmen put out the power generator as a ploy to lure him out.
They got hold of the commissioner when he stepped out to find out what happened to the generator and whisked him off in a waiting speed boat.
The source stated further that the Commissioner of Police, Bayelsa State Command, and top operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, were at Otuokpoti on Friday morning to visit the house.
At the time of filing this report, the abductors have not contacted the family to demand ransom.
