#Sport: Christian Obodo, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen again.
Former Super Eagles midfielder, Christian Obodo, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen along Refinery Road, Warri in Delta State, again. This is the second time the former Udinese midfielder has been kidnapped by gunmen.
The former Nigeria international was abducted by unknown gunmen on June 9, 2012, on his way to church in Warri but the day after he was taken, police tracked his abductors to Isoko, just outside Warri, where they found Obodo and arrested some suspects.
Obodo, 36, was abducted by the gunmen when he stopped to buy bananas on Sunday, the Police Public Relations Officer, Delta State Command, Onome Onovawakpoyeya, said
“Obodo was kidnapped at about 5pm on Sunday around Ishaka Hotel just along Refinery Road, He was with his girlfriend when he was abducted. They both stopped by the road to buy bananas, and no demand has been made for his release so far.
The 2006 AFCON bronze medallist, who described his ordeal eight years ago as a “terrible experience”, miraculously escaped from the abductors, before nearby villagers and a vigilante group, rescued him and informed the police, who trailed the abductors to Isoko.
Europe-based footballers and their relatives have been a target of kidnappers in recent years.
Why not kidnap politicians who steal our money instead of people working hard to earn their money? I ask.
