Okey Okoye, a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly, was abducted earlier this week and has yet to be freed.
Unknown gunmen abducted the member for Aguata II state district and his campaign director, Cyril Chiegboka, in Aguata on Sunday.
On Thursday, state Governor Chukwuma Soludo stated the legislator was still in the hands of his kidnappers.
Members of the Anambra State House of Assembly were notified by Soludo that attempts were being undertaken to save the legislator.
The governor said: “I regret, however, that one of you, the member representing the good people of Aguata II Constituency in the House of Assembly (my own representative) – Hon. Okechukwu Okoye is still in the custody of the kidnappers.
“The security agencies are working very hard and around the clock to secure his freedom. God is on the throne and Anambra will win. Let me leave it at that.”
