A Port Harcourt-based Lawyer, Soalabor West who was kidnapped two weeks ago is now feared dead, Daily Post reports.
West was said to have been killed by his abductors after ransom was provided for his release.
While the police are on the trail of the kidnappers, it is unknown why the Lawyer was killed.
It was reported that the Port Harcourt Branch Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, Sylvester Adaka recently pleaded with the Lawyer’s abductors to release him unconditionally.
Adaka who decried attacks on Lawyers in Rivers state, wondered why members of the NBA became targets of kidnap in the state.
The Rivers State Police Command is yet to react to the development.
