Bibi Oweifa, a young politician in Bayelsa State and aspirant for Yenagoa constituency 2 in the state assembly was kidnapped on Friday July 20th by yet-to-be identified gunmen at the Bayelsa State secretariat Annex 1, Yenagoa.

According to reports, he was kidnapped around 3:30 pm at the state secretariat by gunmen who came in military fatigues, pushed his personal assistant out of the vehicle and sped off with him in commando style.

Oweifa’s kidnap is said to be coming hours before his planned defection alongside hundreds of his supporters to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), scheduled for today, 21st July 2018.

Until his kidnap, he was the state Vice-chairman of the state peace and reconciliation committee.  On 11th July, Bibi Oweifa was endorsed by youths, elders and women of Gbarain/Ekpetiama, Yelga Constituency 2, as their sole candidate.
