A one-time commander of the Nigeria Scrabble public group, Paul Sodje, has passed on after he was apparently snatched by suspected herders in Ondo State.

The Chairman of the Nigeria Scrabble Federation, Publicity Committee, Akintunde Akinsemola, who affirmed this to Punch, said the late Sodje’s body was found inside the hedge in Idoani, Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State on Tuesday, September 1.

As indicated by Akinsemola, Sodje had gone to the shrub to give emancipate cash to certain criminals who had stole his sibling, Chris, four days sooner.

“Chris was going for his uncle’s funeral in Okwagbe, Delta State on August 28, when he was kidnapped at Ifon, Ondo State. The Fulani men demanded N100m but later reduced it to N1m.  His wife Flora and friends rallied round to raise the ransom.

Then his elder brother Paul and a friend took the ransom to them, yet the Fulani men murdered the two of them. Chris has not been found and the kidnappers have stopped communicating with the family.

Idoani elders led by Otunba Oladele Olapeju, who were searching for their kinsmen, who were also kidnapped, saw Paul Sodje’s body and that of the man that accompanied him to the herders rendezvous.

They took the bodies to the Federal Medical Centre, Owo” he said

The late Sodje, who might have been 55 on Wednesday September 9, captained Nigeria to the African Scrabble Championship in Zambia, 2012.

His partners in the scrabble organization have taken to online media to grieve his passing.
