Gunmen kidnap Federal Assistant Director in Abuja
Cover Stories Jan 14, 2010 By Chris Ochayi
ABUJA—AN Assistant Director with the Federal Ministry of National Planning, Chief Oluwole Adelana, was on Sunday night abducted by gunmen in the Garki Area 1 of Abuja.
It was learnt that the abductors drove him away to an unknown destination in his Toyota Camry car.
Chief Adelana had served in the offices of the Accountant-General of the Federation, AGF, and the Millennium Development Goals, MDGs, in Abuja, until his latest posting at the National Planning Ministry.

The incident, it was learnt, had been reported at the Special Anti-Robbery Squads, SARS, office in the nation’s capital. SARS operatives, it was gathered, swung into action immediately the matter was reported by alerting their offices in the neighbouring states.

The car in which Adelana was abducted, it was further gathered, was later discovered set on fire on the Yobe-Maiduguri road by the gunmen after the vehicle was tracked and demobilised.

However, no fewer than two persons are said to be undergoing interrogation in connection with the matter at the SARS office.

According to investigations, the Assistant Director was returning from his hometown, Idoani in the Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State, when the gunmen forcefully abducted him, some metres to his residence in Garki Area 2.

It was further gathered that Adelana, on getting to Garki Area 1, decided to visit a friend who lived in the area before going home.

After the visit, Adelana was about entering his car when the gunmen emerged from hiding, abducted him and drove him away to an unknown location.

The friend to the Assistant Director, who witnessed what happened, was said to have contacted another friend of theirs’ identified as Engineer Dele, who in turned called his (Adelana’s) family to inform them of the incident.

The family, it was gathered, reported the matter to the police same night. Adelana’s office has also been informed about the kidnapping.

A cousin of the Assistant Director, Mr. Duro Aderobagun, confirmed the abduction, yesterday, in Abuja, adding that his family members were worried as no call has been made to them by the abductors to either demand ransom or provide any information since the incident happened.

We used to think that Abuja is safe. This is the second high profile kidnapping in Abuja. The first being the kidnapping of the daughter of a member of the House of Rep at the University of Abuja.

From the South South to the South East, kidnapping has spread to the North Central (Kogi) to the South West and the North. Now Abuja is under focus.

It is so frustrating that the government is doing nothing to address the root causes of this trend.

I guess it is time to say another round of prayer for Nigeria

Poor assistant director, but until we stand up against irresponsible governance it shall not stop. But thinking about it now, here's a list of 3 people I wont complain if I hear them kidnapped.

1. Aondoakaa
2. Aondoakaa
3. Mike Aondoakaa

I have a feeling its a crime that'll do more good than harm.

Go boys!

I hope the man comes back safe. But, above that, I hope we can resolve our issue's in Nigeria; we are sinking at a rapid rate. cry

I am an Ondo guy and my father was a personal friend of that man but I am glad he has been abducted. All these useless people who claim to be honest only to go and serve a corrupt government deserve no pity from us.

He got what he deserved. I wont mind if they kill him too. It is about time we start killing these folks. No mercy for the PDP no forgiveness KILL THEM ALL

A sniper’s bullet will be more appropriate for Mike Aondoakaa.
