The Senator representing Benue South Senatorial District, Comrade Abba Patrick Moro, strongly condemns the kidnap of Prof. Sylvanus Edache Okpe.

Prof. Okpe, the National Vice President of Ochetoha K’Idoma, was abducted at about 7pm, along Otukpo-Otukpa road, on Wednesday, after attending the National Executive Council Meeting of Ochetoha K’Idoma in Otukpo.

Senator Moro says the abduction of the erudite Professor is very disheartening and most unfortunate. He decries the rising cases of kidnapping in Benue South, saying that the practice is alien to the Senatorial District. He appeals to the perpertrators of the act to turn a new leaf and stop further desecration of the land.

The Senator charges security agents to take steps to have the Professor rescued as soon as possible. He appeals to the abductors to release him unconditionally so that he can reunite with his family.
