Suspected gunmen have kidnapped a former Edo State House of Assembly member, Festus Edughele, in Ubiaja while on his way from Orhionmwon to Benin City, the state capital.

Edughele was said to be travelling to Benin to board a plane to Abuja when he was abducted by the gunmen who took him into the bush.
