Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Wallocracy Valley Pharmaceutical Ltd, simply identified as Mr Chuks, has been kidnapped in Kokori, Kokori Ethiopia East Local Government Area of Delta State.
This comes as suspected armed robbers attacked some individuals in the community over the weekend.
Details of the kidnapping were still vague at the time of the report’s submission.
Community sources told reporters that the pharmacist was kidnapped Saturday night.
“Yesterday at 8pm, Saturday, August 6, 2022, while we were still getting fresh air outside, a tinted-class Toyota Sienna car with an unidentified license plate drove in and parked in front of the pharmacy.
“We thought it was customers who wanted to buy drugs when we suddenly heard gunshots,” the source said.
The source further noted that the gunmen forcibly entered the store with their weapons and went straight to the CEO’s office, kidnapping him and firing sporadically into the air to scare people away.
He said the gunmen left with the pharmacist for an unknown destination.
According to one of the victim’s relatives, all his mobile phones had been switched off by his captors.
The source lamented the state of insecurity in the community, saying, “There are many security forces in the community, but something like this happens in the community as if there is no security guard at all.”
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe, could not be reached at the time of submitting the report.
