The source said, “Elvis went to his village to see his father on Sunday. He was with his father and a family friend when the gunmen entered the house and whisked the three of them away.

“The gunmen operated so quickly. They tied up everyone before taking away Elvis, his father and the visiting family friend.

“Elvis is popular and a rich man in Asaba; so, we are surprised about the incident. Now, the whole community is panicky; the abductors have not had any contact with  the family.”
