According to a report by SaharaReporters, some unknown gunmen have kidnapped a popular nightclub owner identified as Tari Ajanami in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
Ajanami, an indigene of Ayamasa town in the Ekeremor Local Government Area of the state, was abducted around 6pm on Wednesday at his building project site along Otiotio Road in the state capital.
Ajanami is the 43-year-old owner of the popular nightclub, Club 64, along the Bay Ridge area of Yenagoa and he also works as a cash officer at Wema Bank.
SaharaReporters gathered that the victim was at his building site to pay workers when the gunmen whisked him away to an unknown destination.
While some eyewitnesses claim the abduction may be connected to his recent lavish birthday celebration, others argue that he may have been kidnapped for a ransom.
When contacted, spokesman for the state police command, Asinim Butswat, said, “On 28 July 2021 at about 2100 hours, three armed men kidnapped one Oyintari Ajanani, male, 43, at Otiotio, Yenagoa.
“All operatives have been alerted and are on the trail of the suspects.”
