Commissioner for oil and gas in Delta State Prince Emmanuel Amgbaduba has said he escaped abduction on Sunday evening.

In his Facebook post on Monday, Amgbaduba who is a part of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s cabinet revealed that the incident occurred while he was on his way to Warri, Delta State.

According to the post, the abductors blocked his car along the Nigerian Port Authority Expressway in their efforts to kidnap him.

“Dear all, I want you to help me to thank God as the Almighty God protected me from the hands of kidnappers yesterday (Sunday) at about 7pm on my way into Warri Town, at the NPA expressway,” he wrote.

“A beige-coloured Toyota Camry rammed into me and forced my vehicle to come to a halt and two hefty young men popped out from the front seat of the car, one at the back and one guy rushing towards me.

“Without panicking, I put my car in reverse and faced the thug that came out from the passenger side of the car at full speed ahead. While he jumped off the road, I drove off and had a successful getaway.”

While thanking God for protection, Amgbaduba urged motorists to be vigilant especially along the Warri axis.
