Gunmen, Wednesday night, kidnapped the President of the Association of Resident Doctors, Delta State University Teaching Hospital, DELSUTH, Dr. Jerry Isogun.


The medical doctor was said to be heading to Sapele, his base when the gunmen waylaid his vehicle and whisked him away to an unknown destination.


He was abducted within the Oghara-Mosogar/Sapele road, along the Benin highway in Ethiope-West Local Government, TRIBUNEPOINT WEEKLY learnt.


It is not clear if the gunmen has contacted the victim’s family to negotiate a ransom for his release.
The Delta State University Teaching Hospital, DELSUTH, is yet to make any official statement on the abduction of the medical doctor.


When contacted for comments, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Adeyinka Adeleke confirmed the report in a telephone chat with our correspondent in Warri.


CP Adeleke said, “The man’s mother called her and as they were speaking, she suddenly heard him begging some people.


“We don’t know the exact location where the incident happened. The mother said he was going to Sapele. So, we suspect the incident happened between Oghara and Sapele.

We have been tracking his number. Some people called demanding for money but we don’t know the location where it happened.”
