I’ll release Bayelsa commissioner when police free my father, says kidnapper

The abductors of the Bayelsa State Commissioner for Industry, Trade and Investment, Federal Otokito, have contacted the paramount ruler of his community, Otuokpoti, in the Ogbia Local Government Area of the state. Otokito’s assailants, believed to be operators of illegal crude oil refinery, also known as ‘kpofire’, had stormed his residence in the community on Thursday night and grabbed him from his bedroom at gunpoint into a waiting speedboat at the waterside and sped away. They were said to have kidnapped Otokito for opposing their plan to set up an illegal crude oil refinery in the community’s forest. Sunday PUNCH
