'We Are Trying To Fish Out Abductors Of INEC Staff '- Bayelsa Police Commissioner Reveals

The Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police, Tolani Alausa, has revealed that he has sent out the command’s tactical force to fish out the abductors of an official of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) who was kidnapped while on her way to her point of duty in Sagbama on Friday night. 

Giving the update while going around to observe the conduct of the election in Bayelsa State, Alasua revealed that the police had identified the name of the suspect alleged to have carried out the heinous act.

“One of the INEC officials who was taking some materials to one particular local government that is Sagbama, they were supposed to take a boat to Sagbama, and in the course of that, some hoodlums attacked her and took her away with the ballot materials. Since that last night, I’ve deployed all my tactical team, and we are trying to fish out who did this heinous act,” Alausa said.

“As of this morning, I got information that the man’s name is one Jonah Adaka. I contacted a few of the people I felt may have known him but nobody was able to reach him, so we are still on the situation. Then there was a boat mishap, and fortunately, nobody died in that, but the electoral materials sank,” he added.
