Nigeria: Police Confused over Kidnap of Ex-Senator
Local Editor

There is confusion and uncertainty over the kidnap of former senator and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Ayo Arise, as security agencies have no clue about his kidnap.

Ayo Arise

Arise was reportedly kidnapped while on his way to Abuja on Sunday evening, after attending some political meetings in Ekiti.

Media investigations revealed that police commands in the four states of Edo, Ekiti, Ondo and Kogi which share a common border along the area the politician was said to have been kidnapped, are yet to account for any kidnap incident involving Arise.

Ekiti State Police Public Relations Officer, Alberto Adeyemi, who earlier confirmed the incident, however, said he could not make comments because it did not happen within his jurisdiction.

Asked where it happened, he said, "I cannot say, I am not allowed to comment on incidents that did not happen within my jurisdiction."

Efforts to get a response from the Ondo State Police Command also met a brick wall as it had no idea where the senator was kidnapped.

Police spokesperson in the state, Femi Joseph, said the incident did not take place within the Ondo State jurisdiction. He however promised to do more to get clearer details of the incident.

In Kogi State where it was thought the kidnap took place, the police formation sad it was yet to get any information or report of kidnapping in the state.

William Aya, the Kogi Police Public Relations Officer, told PREMIUM TIMES that the command was yet to receive any report of the kidnap of the senator.

"I don't think it happened within Kogi State," he said. "We have not received any report on that for now."

The Edo State Police Command also had no information on the whereabouts of the senator, as the command claimed no report had been made about him.
