Gunmen reportedly kidnapped and kill a former Rivers State chairman of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, Ebenezer Amah.
The State police who confirmed the incident said on Wednesday night, Amah was kidnapped by gunmen who trailed him to his residence on Precious Chukwu Street in Woji, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state while he was driving into his house.
The gunmen blocked his vehicle, dragged him out and took him.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Nnamdi Omoni, said the Amah’s vehicle was recovered the same day, but his lifeless body was found on Peter Odili Road on Thursday.
Amah, who retired from the Shell Petroleum Development Company, was learnt to be shot minutes after he was abducted and his body dumped along the road.

“The vehicle is in our custody. Investigation has commenced into the incident to ensure that the suspects behind the dastardly act are apprehended and all hands are on deck.”
Deputy National Chairman of the Trade Union Congress, Chika Onuegbu said, “ETK Amah was a very good comrade who radiated joy everywhere he went. So sad; may his soul rest in peace.”
