Ogiasa, who was Commissioner for Special Duties in Bayelsa State, was kidnapped on June 2, 2022, from his home in Otuabadi, Ogbia Local Government Area of the State.

The video, which was released by unknown persons, showed Ogiasa in a grave in an unknown area, while his head was covered with a black polythene bag, with his two hands tied.

Ogiasa, who sounded scared for his life, was heard asking his family whether his life was not worth anything to them.

He pleaded that the ransom demanded by the abductors be paid to secure his release.

Meanwhile, the spokesman of the Bayelsa Police Command, Asinim Butswat, who confirmed the authenticity of the video, said the heads of security agencies met on Friday night to brainstorm new strategies to ensure he is rescued unhurt.

According to Butswat, the police want to assure the general public and families of the victim of their commitment to secure his safe release from the kidnappers’ den.
