The National Chairman of Action Alliance, AA Kenneth Udeze has been kidnapped by armed attackers.
According to his wife, Genevieve, Udeze was kidnapped on Friday morning outside a Zenith Bank branch in Dutse Alhaji, Abuja.
She said her husband woke up to discover several text messages indicating heavy withdrawals from his bank accounts that were not authorised by him.
“After suspecting his account had been hacked, he rushed to the bank to find out what happened,” Mrs Genevieve Udeze said. “He was with his driver when he was kidnapped outside the Zenith Bank.”
According to reports, the abductors took Mr Udeze away in a black SUV, his wife said. She added that she was on her way to the police station to report the incident.
Udeze has been the chairman of AA.
The party became prominent through the influence of former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, who had tipped his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu to succeed him in office under its platform.
