A Bayelsa State House of Assembly candidate on the platform of National Conscience Party, NPC, Mr. Lucky Ogbazi, was abducted by gunmen from his home town in Azikoro, a suburb of Yenagoa, yesterday. According to his wife Grace, about four gunmen, who came in two Hilux trucks, broke into their house about 12 midnight, saying they were taking him in for questioning. His family declared him kidnapped after concerted efforts made to ascertain where he was did not yield any result. According to his lawyer, Mr. Moses Omoregie, the family had visited several police stations in the state capital and the office of the Department of State Services, DSS, but could not find him. The abducted Ofoni-born politician is contesting for a seat to represent Sagbama constituency 1 in the state House of Assembly.
