Less than three weeks after armed men abducted wife of a staff of Seplat Petroleum Development Company Ltd., spouse of another staff of the company, Chief Anthony Owumi, has been kidnapped at their residence, near Amukpe market, Sapele.
Seplat is a Delta State-based oil firm.
Mrs Sussan Owumi was kidnapped by a five-man gang Sunday morning in front of her house as they prepared to make their way to morning church service at the Living Faith Church, aka, Winners Chapel, located at Crudas Road, Sapele.
The kidnappers shot several times into the air to scare people away before zooming off with the victim’s black Mercedes 4matic car.
Vanguard reports that the kidnappers, however, released the victim’s son and one of her male tenants and his two kids, before zooming off with her.
Owumi, the victim’s husband, was said to have travelled the previous day to Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on official duty.
No contact has been established with the kidnappers as at press time, while the police say investigation has commenced.
