The Bayelsa State Vigilante Force yesterday arrested two alleged kidnappers, who held one Mrs. Judith Adoga on gunpoint and forced her to different ATM points within Yenagoa metropolis where they withdrew undisclosed amount of money from her account.
According to Mrs. Adoga, a staff of the Ministry for Budget and Economic Planning, she was going to drop her friend along Imgbi Road, Amarata, when the kidnappers numbering four came in the guise of being environmental officials and held her captive.
She said “after I closed from work, my friend pleaded that I drop her off at Imgbi Road. When we got to Imgbi roundabout and my friend came down from my car, four men rounded up my car, saying they are officials of environmental sanitation authority. After saying so they entered my car, pointed me guns and asked me to drive.
“They forced me to give them my ATM card and take them to different ATM points where they withdrew all the money in my account. Afterwards, they then called my family members with my phone, demanding money that would serve as ransom for my release.
“So, it was at that point one my relations called the Chairman of the Bayelsa Vigilante Force who mobilized his men and rescued me from my abductors.”
Confirming the incident, the Chairman of the Bayelsa Vigilante Force, Hon. Doubiye Alagba and his Secretary, Hon.
