Chairman of the institution’s ASUP, Prince Wiwo, confirmed the incident to journalists, saying that James was kidnapped at his residence at Igwurutali, Ikwerre Local Government Area of the State on Tuesday.
Wiwo said the union might embark on a protest soon, if their colleague was not released unconditionally.
He said,:“The news of the kidnap of Mr. James came to us yesterday, as a shock. As a union, we are calling on the security agencies to take control of the situation and ensure a successful rescue of our colleague.
“The abductors are in the same vein advised to release him unconditionally without further delay. The union will not accept any kidnap of any of our members, even after he is released.
