Unknown gunmen kidnap Goodluck Jonathan’s cousin, Jephthah Robert, in Bayelsa

Unknown gunmen have abducted Jephthah Robert, a cousin of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The abduction, it was gathered, occurred at about 9:30 pm on Monday.

Though details of the abduction were sketchy, yesterday, it was learned that the gunmen stormed his residence around Dimrose Road, in Yenagoa, laid ambush and waylaid him as he was returning home around 9:30 pm before whisking him away.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Bayelsa State Command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the incident.

The news of the abduction of Jonathan’s cousin filtered in barely 24 hours after the state Commissioner for Industry, Trade and Investment, Federal Otokito, was freed by his abductors.
