Kidnappers Abduct Sylvanus Okogbenin, Kill Two Policemen In Edo

Gunmen on Monday abducted the Chief Medical
Director of the Irrua Specialist Hospital, Edo
State, Prof. Sylvanus Okogbenin, after killing two
policemen attached to him.
The Medical Director was said to be travelling to
Benin.
This is coming on the heel of a similar abduction
of two Assistant Directors of the hospital last
week and their subsequent release after payment
of ransom.
Two other persons in the convoy whose identities
were yet to be ascertained were shot in the leg.
An eyewitness said the gunmen abducted Prof.
Okogbenin after killing the policemen.
The incident happened at Ramat Park Ikpoba-
Okha Local Government Area while the CMD was
coming to Benin.
Police Spokesmen, DSP Chidi Nwabuzor, said an
investigation into the incident has commenced.
Chairman of Senior Staff Association of
Universities Teaching Hospital Research Institute
and Associated Institutions of Nigeria, Irrua
branch, Comrade Emmanuel Igiechi, said the
union would protest against insecurity in the
area.
Comrade Igiechi said the abduction showed that
the workers at the hospital were being monitored.
“This tells us how serious the security situation
has become. It is a very dire situation we are in.
The security agencies should strengthen their
presence in Irrua and environs,” Igiechi said
