Confirming the news to Channels TV, one of the brothers of Jediel, Boniface Stephen, said the kidnappers got hold of the NLC boss in his residence at Sunkani, the headquarters of Ardo-Kola local government area.

Moreover, the police command in the state is yet to make any official statement concerning the disturbing development.
Meanwhile, there was panic in the Igbo community in New Delhi, India, after five men reportedly died mysteriously within a week.

He wrote on his Facebook page:
"5 Igbo boys dead in New Delhi, India within 1 week. I was sent the videos and pictures but I will not post them. So sad to behold. May their souls find peace. These are HARD TIMES."
