According to IOL, the Olifantsfontein police department is currently investigating a case of kidnapping. 

The businessman's wife, Mamelo, told IOL that she was informed of the incident by security guards after it was caught on camera. 

“There were two witnesses to the incident. An Uber driver and a security guard. The security guard works for the company which works around our estate," Mamelo told IOL.

“They got the vehicle registration for the cars and realised it was my car. They have our details so they came to our house."

In the video footage, Gova is seen stopping at a traffic light in Centurion when a vehicle stops beside him and another behind him. 

The suspects exited their cars and then allegedly forced Gova into a silver vehicle before making a U-turn and speeding off.

According to Mamelo, the abduction has been "very hard on the family". It has been a week since the 35-year-old was abducted.
