Mejuru who was described by the residents of Obehie town as peace-loving and easy-going.

According to a resident of Obehie town who spoke to Vanguard; “Chief Godwin Mejuru is an easygoing and peace-loving person. Who could have plotted against him? We only heard that he was returning to his residence at Obehie town. Nobody knows how the incident happened. Maybe, he ran into the kidnappers on the road. We pray they release him unhurt.”
