Less than 24 hours after declaring his intention to seek re-election, Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson, woke up on Wednesday to the news that his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Fyneman Wilson, had been kidnapped.
The abduction took place around 4.00 am at Sagbama local government, where the governor also hails from.
Bayelsa State Police Public Relations Officer, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the report but said he had no details of the incident.
Wilson’s abduction is being linked to the money set aside for mobilising crowd to the re-election rally of the governor, with many who attended the event allegedly underpaid.
Bayelsa State has witnessed some kidnappings in recent time, including the abduction of three monarchs by suspected pirates who are yet to be released.
