Gunmen Kill 1, Abduct At Least 200 Islamiyya Students In NigerUnknown gunmen have abducted Madam Betinah Benson, 80-year-old mother of Secretary to Bayelsa State Government (SSG), Rt. Hon. Konbowei Friday Benson.

It was reported that the octogenarian was kidnapped by gunmen in military uniform at about 10 pm on Tuesday at her residence at the old legislative quarters in Yenagoa, the state capital.

It is yet to be ascertained if the abductors have established contacts with the family as of the time of filing the report.

The politician is yet to react to the abduction of his mother while the state police command says it will be releasing a statement concerning the matter soon.
