It was learnt that on getting to the residence of the commissioner, the gunmen put out the generator as a ploy to lure him out.

The source said that the gunmen who stormed the riverine Otuokpoti community from the creek, got hold of the commissioner when he stepped out to find out what happened to the generator and whisked him off in a waiting speed boat.

The source stated further that the commissioner of Police, Bayelsa State Command and top operatives of the DSS were at Otuokpoti on Friday morning to visit the house.

As at the time of filing this report, the abductors have not contacted the family to demand for ransom.
