A retired senior officer of the Department of State Security, Peter Unogwu, popularly known as Naraguta, in Benue State, has been kidnapped

According to Punch, the victim, who operates a hotel in Igumale, headquarters of Ado Local Government Area of Benue, was said to be travelling on the Otukpo-Utonkon-Igumale Road when the suspected kidnappers stopped his car, and forcefully took him to an unknown place.

A source, who simply identified himself as Onazi Agbo, told The PUNCH on the telephone that the retired DSS Officer was kidnapped on the road.

The PUNCH gathered that the victim at a time served as the Chief Security Officer of Chevron Nigeria Limited.

Agbo said, “He was coming from Otukpo to Igumale and on approaching Igumale, some armed men waylaid him and forcefully took him away.

“The incident happened around 5 pm yesterday (Wednesday).”

As of the time of filing this report, the kidnappers were yet to contact the family of the victim.

When contacted, the Benue State Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Catherine Anene, confirmed the abduction of the retired DSS officer.

He said the police were on the trail of the kidnappers.

Anene said, “The former DSS man was kidnapped yesterday (Wednesday). Our men are already trailing the kidnappers.”
