YPP’s deputy governorship candidate kidnapped in Cross River state by gunmen

Prince Agbor Onyi, the Young Progressives Party‘s deputy governorship nominee in the state of Cross Rivers, has been abducted.

According to the party, he was taken hostage on Thursday, February 16, in the evening in the Akparavuni village of the Biase Local Government Area, Cross River state.

Family sources have also disclosed that the kidnappers have demanded a huge ransom. A statement released by the Secretary of Cross River state chapter of YPP, Comrade Fredrick Omari, read;

“We have received with rude shock the depressing news of the kidnap of our Deputy Governorship candidate, Prince Agbor Onyi.

“The timing of this criminal act is very devastating to the party and is a very serious concern to us all. We, therefore, call on the Nigerian Police and all security agencies to swing into action with unaccustomed alacrity.

“We demand that our Deputy Governorship candidate be released from the kidnappers’ den immediately to enable him proceed to his community to perform his civic duty tomorrow.”
