Rivers state, Port Harcourt – Unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers on Monday, April 8, abducted the Rivers state governorship candidate of the National Rescue Movement in the 2023 general election.

As reported by The Punch, Sobomabo Jackrich was whisked away from his residence in Usokun in the Degema local government area of the state to an unknown location.

Also, it was gathered that two of his loyalists, found when his residence was raided in the wee hours of the day, were shot dead by the assailants, and their remains were taken away along with Jackreech.

Who is Sobomabo Jackrich?

“His residence was condoned.”
