Eight days of horror inkidnappers den, by victim


A kidnap victim, Denson Ojutuiwon, who was
released Friday night after spending eight
days in a kidnappers’ den in Delta State, has
narrated how he and his fellow worker were
whipped with cutlass, tortured and starved of
food by their captors.
Ojutuiwon, a dredging master with Practical
Dredging and Marine Company Limited,
Effurun, Delta state, was abducted along with
his supervisor, Robinson Gbakena, at Egrangbene
community in Burutu Local Government, July 6,
where the company was carrying out a dredging
Their kidnappers, who kept sending threat
messages to the managing director of the
company, Owen Nanakumoh, said they were
hired by an unnamed sponsor to assassinate
Nanakumoh and demanded N30 million ransom
to free the workers.
They said they took the workers hostages
because they did not see the managing director
when they stormed the project site.
Ojutuiwon, who spoke to Sunday Vanguard,
yesterday, said they were taken to a location on
Warri-Burutu River on Friday night and
abandoned there by the kidnappers after which
they were brought to Warri by a Good Samaritan.
He said, “We were in Egrangbene for a
dredging project, we were sleeping on July 6
after closing from work when some persons,
armed with cutlass and guns came in the night,
they started beating us, asking us, where is your
managing director”.
Ojutuiwon said he was blindfolded and taken
away and it was later he found out that his
supervisor was also kidnapped.
“They blindfolded us and were beating us with
cutlass to tell them where our managing director
is living in Warri and that they were recruited
by somebody he has problem with on the
dredging project to take his life”.
“We were starved for three days before they
started giving us little food, they thoroughly
dealt with us”, he added.
A reliable source said, last night, that the Anti-
Terrorism Squad, ATS, Warri had arrested four
persons, in connection with the kidnap and that a
monarch was suspected to be the brain behind the
Spokesperson of the Delta State Police
Command, Mr. Charles Muka, promised to find
out the details and reach Sunday Vanguard when
contacted him for comments.
