News from very reliable sources have it that the APC candidate in the forthcoming elections for the Edo State House of Assembly, Owan West Constituency, Ohio Ezomo has been kidnapped by unknown persons. The unfortunate event was said to have occurred at about 11 pm Wednesday while he was returning from a campaign exercise. The kidnapping was said to have been violently executed as one of his police escorts was shot to death.
According to a PDP chieftain, Friday Ojelearo while speaking on the sad event said; “Ohio is an illustrious son of Owan. Irrespective of the political leanings we profess,we should all come together and pray for him so that God will help him out of this travail. Owan is one and anything that happens to one of us affects us all.
“This is calling on all the vigilante groups of Owan East and West to join hand together to comb every area of our bush or suspicious environment. We must not allow the kidnappers to succeed. They should be found and arrested and made to answer to their crimes. Owanland cannot be a turf for scums of the earth”
