Mike Ogiasa, an Engineer was kidnapped on June 4, 2022 in his hometown of Otuabadi in Ogbia Local Government Area.
The victim, who was a Special Adviser on Power Development during the administration of former Governor Seriake Dickson, is also the Convener of a socio-political group, Voice of the South-South (VSS).
In the 27 seconds video which Monrycentral obtained, Ogiasa is seen half-naked in a flooded grave.
His hands were tied, as he cries out for urgent help.
He cried, “You’re seeing me in the grave. Please do everything possible to come and release me. Any money that is available…any money you can make. Do everything possible. Please any money that is available. Is the money more important than my life? Please do everything that is possible.”
Ogiasa, who also served as Special Adviser on Power to the state government, had finished attending a meeting before his assailants swooped on him.
According to Butswat, a combined investigative effort involving security agencies had been launched with a view to rescuing Ogiasa and arresting the culprits.
