Foremost Benue born social activist, Barr. Franc Utoo has been abducted by unknown gunmen.
Utoo was abducted on Saturday, in the presence of his 2 kids, around Chambian Plaza in Gwarimpa-Abuja.
The unknown gunmen, who were said to be in mufti, apparently trailed Utoo from his house when he went out with the kids and house help to pick some groceries from the supermarket.
The abductors, however, were alleged to have told the house help that they had orders from some powerful politicians in Benue State Goverment and the State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to pick Barr. Utoo.
When contacted, a Police source in Makurdi, Benue State capital, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the arrest of Utoo.
The source disclosed that the APC stalwart was being held by the Police Authority at the state command on the order of an APC chieftain, who complained that Barr. Utoo insulted him on facebook.
