Armed kidnappers on Tuesday abducted 72-year-old Inegite Jonathan, an uncle and foster father to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The septuagenarian was once kidnapped on February 28, 2014 and later rescued by security forces at Akipli community in Ogbia on March 10, 2014.

Mr. Jonathan was reportedly kidnapped at 10pm on Tuesday at his residence in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

A relation of the victim, Oru Solomon, confirmed the abduction, appealing to the kidnappers to free the old man in view of his old age.
