Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have reportedly kidnapped a man identified as Mr Joseph after forcing his wife to cook jollof rice for them in Okpanam, Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State.

It was gathered that the hoodlums were drenched at the Graceland Estate in Okpanam during a heavy downpour, were they attacked the couple’s apartment and whisked away with Mr Joseph.


The wife, simply addressed as Mrs Joseph, said the gunmen came through the window, pointed a gun at her husband and ordered him to open the door.

Mrs Joseph: “We were in the house when we heard some noise from the window. They told my husband to open the window. When the window was opened, they pointed a gun at my husband and asked him to open the door.”

They brought my husband out in the rain and asked him to lie down and they took me inside and asked me to prepare rice for them, which I did. They took all my husband’s shoes, clothes, phones, ATM cards and all my jewellery.”

After preparing the jollof rice, they ordered me to dish it into a flask, which they took away with my husband to an unknown destination

The woman noted that the gunmen, who attacked her family, were herders as they spoke in a language that sounded like “Fulfulde“.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, who confirmed the incident, said the command is making efforts to rescue the victim.
