#BREAKING Father of Former Speaker of the House KIDNAPPED by gunmen #HNNGov

Gunmen have kidnapped Chief Tsegba Gbor, the father of former speaker Pro Tempore of the Federal House of Representatives, Terngu Tsegba.

Gbor was abducted on Saturday at about 8pm at his residence in Adekaa, Gboko-West, Gboko local government area of Benue State.

It was gathered that gunmen stormed the residence of the traditional ruler at about 8pm and whisked the 80-year-old away.

The eldest son of the abducted chief, Mr. Igba Tsegba, told our correspondent that the abductors had yet to make any contact with the family.

He explained that the kidnappers came to his father’s house in Gboko and demanded to see him. When the old man came out, he was bundled into a vehicle and taken to an unknown destination.

They are prolly gonna ask for some huge reward. That's how it works in Nigeria. Kidnappers are not taking it easy these days. If they can kidnap Falae and Nozi Okonjo-Iweala's mother, they can kidnap anyone.
