The winner of the 2014 edition of the Gulder Ultimate Search Viewers’ Choice Awards in October in 2014, Canon Otto, was reportedly kidnapped by yet to be identified gunmen in Port Harcourt, Rivers state capital on Monday.
The TV star’s close friend, Rapheal Koko, who made the disclosure to newsmen on Monday, said: “Otto has been kidnapped.”
“He was in Lagos for an event last week and now I’m getting calls from mutual friends that he was kidnapped in Port Harcourt over the weekend. We still don’t have all the details yet. It’s just very surprising and shocking.”
It was gathered that the kidnappers have since reached out to his mother and demanded a ransom of N5 million Naira.
It’s not clear if the ransom will be paid or not but sources close to his family says ‘his mum is really sad and confused but the Police is involved already, so we are hopeful’.
