|Nigeria Midfielder, Christian Obodo Has Been Abducted by greenhope(m): 1:52pm On Jun 09, 2012|
Nigeria midfielder, Christian Obodo has been abducted
The Udinese playmaker was seized on Saturday at about 9.20am local time (10.20am CAT) in front of a church in Efunrun off Jakpa Road in Warri, Delta State. Obodo was taken away from his car with a special registration number tag 'Obodo 5.' The abductors took the occupant but left the car in front of the church and zoomed off in their own vehicle which they had used to tail the footballer.
The 28-year-old, who played on loan last season at Lecce, was said to have gone clubbing on Friday night in the same vehicle in Warri before his kidnap on Saturday. "Yes he has been kidnapped," said the official to SuperSport.com. "The details are still sketchy but I was told he was on his way to church this (Saturday) morning with his car that has registration number 'Obodo 5.'"
"Apparently his car's registration may have attracted his kidnappers because he went clubbing last (Friday) night in the same car." The official also said the kidnappers are yet to get in touch with any of the player's relatives or friends as at the time of this report. Obodo's kidnap is the first high-profile abduction of a footballer.
