June 8th (URHOBOTODAY) THE Ughelli kingdom, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State was yesterday thrown into a state of confusion following the kidnap of Queen Gladys Oharisi, one of the wives of the king of the kingdom, HRM Oharisi III by yet unknown gunmen.
The Queen, it was gathered was intercepted on her way from school, where she went to register her courses at the Delta State University, Abraka.

The hoodlums, according to a family source, trailed the unsuspecting Queen to somewhere around Orogun on the Abraka road before intercepting her with their Toyota Sienna car.
According to a source, three occupants of a Sienna car came from the car living the driver on the steering, pointing guns at her and two others in her company, adding that; “our Queen was pushed into the waiting Sienna car and whisked away. The driver and the other occupant were spared.”
Continuing, the source, who pleaded anonymity said the suspected kidnappers were yet to establish contact with the palace, adding that; “the entire kingdom is worried about her whereabout. We pray God to touch the heart of those behind the kidnap to release her unhurt.”
Effort made to the police authority in the area for comment on the matter proved abortive as at press time. However, a senior police officer attached to the Ughelli ‘B’ division confirmed the incident and said the police was on top the issue.
The police officer who does not want his name in print said; “our resolve to check criminal activities in the area and bring them to book is unshaken. I can assure you, we will fish them out.”
