Release our brother unconditionally, Jonathan’s cousins beg kidnappers

The family of Mr. Jephthah Robert Yekorogha, the abducted cousin to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has appealed to the kidnappers to release their brother unconditionally.

Yekorogha was kidnapped on Monday in front of his house in Yenagoa, the state capital while returning home.

His younger brother, Aziboala Robert, in a statement, said the case was receiving maximum attention from the security agencies.

He said, “Our elder brother, Mr. Jephthah Robert Yekorogha, was kidnapped at about 8:40pm on Monday, 24th January 2022, in front of his house gate at Biogbolo, in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, by four gunmen in black uniform, who, at gunpoint, seized him in his car and forced him into their vehicle and zoomed off.

“This incident was reported to the law enforcement agencies immediately it happened and is receiving maximum attention.

“We ask for the support of the public on any lead for the quick release of our brother.

“We appeal to the abductors of our brother to immediately release him unconditionally, without harm and turn a new leaf for the peace, security and prosperity of Bayelsa State.” Azibaola Robert.

Police spokesman for the state, SP Asinim Butswat, said security agents were working to rescue the victim unhurt.
