PDP youth leader, Uche OkoyeThe National Youth Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon SKE Udeh-Okoye has been kidnapped, police said.
According to police spokesman in the state, SP Ebere Amaraizu, Mr. Okoye was visiting his farm in his home, Enugu State, when he was abducted at gunpoint at Agbaogwugwu Junction, Awgu LGA in the state.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, it wasn’t immediately clear whether Mr Okoye’s abductors have contacted his family or law enforcement to make request for ransom. The police are saying little of what they might know of the incident as of late Monday.
“We are on it, but because of the nature of the incident, we would not be able to disclose much details,” Mr Amaraizu said. “He went to his farm and was kidnapped, that should do for now.”
Mr Okoye was elected to lead the PDP youth wing at the party’s national convention in late 2017. He resigned his position as a member of the Enugu State House of Assembly after he was elected youth leader and moved to Abuja.
