Kidnapped and killed: Police recover body of Ned Nwoko’s aide

Barrister Chris Agidy, the Senior Legislative Aide to the lawmaker representing Delta North, Senator Ned Nwoko, who was kidnapped by bandits in 2023, has been killed.

The Federal Capital Territory Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, confirmed this to newsmen on Tuesday [today].

Recall that at least 19 persons were, in November 2023, kidnapped from their homes in the Galadimawa area of the FCT by gunmen. A report earlier emerged that 12 of the abductees were killed.

However, the identities of the deceased were not clear as Senator Nwoko and the security operatives continued efforts to rescue the lawyer.

Confirming the killing on Tuesday, however, the FCT PPRO said the lawmaker’s aide was killed by one of the wanted notorious kidnappers terrorizing the FCT, Samaila Wakili.

Wakili was reportedly arrested on February 24 at the Sardauna Forest, in Toto area of Nasarawa State, by police operatives.

The FCT PPRO said the suspect, upon his arrest, “led police operatives to where the remains of Barr. Chris Agidy was”.
