Gunmen Kidnap Jonathan’s Cousin In Bayelsa.

Jephthah Robert, a relative of former President Goodluck Jonathan, has been kidnapped by gunmen suspected of being kidnappers.

He was taken at 9.30 p.m. on Tuesday in front of his residence on Dimrose Road in Yenagoa, according to reports.

Azibaola Robert, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Zeetin Engineering Limited, is the victim’s older brother.

The circumstances behind Jephthah’s kidnapping were unclear, but a spokesman for the State Police Command, SP Asinim Butswat, acknowledged the occurrence in a brusque reaction to questions.

Butswat said, “He was picked up at Dimrose Road in Yenagoa. We are intensifying effort to rescue him and arrest the kidnappers.

“We are working on a promising lead.”

Jonathan’s cousin was kidnapped just 24 hours after Federal Otokito, the Bayelsa State Commissioner for Industry, Trade, and Investment, was released by his kidnappers.

On January 20, Otokito was kidnapped from his home in Otuokpoti, a hamlet in the state’s Ogbia Local Government Area.

He was held captive by his assailants for nearly five days before being released on Monday.
