The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra, Mr. Ken Emekayi, is said to have been kidnapped.
According to reports, Mr. Emekayi was abducted around the Agulu environs of the Anaocha Local Government Area of the state at about 8pm on Sunday.
The kidnappers are said to have contacted the family but the exact details of the communication are not known.
A member of his family who spoke to THISDAY on the condition of anonymity yesterday, said the kidnappers had opened a channel of communication with the family but declined to disclose the exact ransom they were demanding or where he was being held.
He simply said negotiations had begun and he would not know if the abduction was politically-motivated.
But the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Akila Usman Gwarry, told THISDAY on phone yesterday that the police had not been briefed on the development.
