INSECURITY : Varsity Professor Kidnapped in Calabar

Published by on December 1st, 2019.


By Edem Edem, Calabar

A Professor of Fine Arts based in United States of America who came to Calabar, Cross River State capital about a week ago, has been kidnapped.

Professor Onoyom Godfred Ukpong was kidnapped in his family compound at No 9 Mbukpa Street on Thursday by 10pm when he came back from outing.

An eyewitness who declined giving his names lamented that kidnap was one too many in the State hence the people are leaving in fear as they don’t know what would happen in the next second.

“The man went out and came back around 10pm. He parked his car in the garage, stepped out to lock his gate when some men, heavily armed stepped out of their car and took him away to unknown destination.

“The incident happened in a commando style by 10pm on Thursday. There was a car parked in front of the compound for over two hours with men and a lady making desperate calls. None of us knew why the car was there until when the incident occurred.

When contacted the senior member of the family, Engineer Edet Ukpong, confirmed the kidnap of his brother. He told out correspondent on Saturday at the family compound that he was not in the house when the incident occurred,

“I was not in the house when the incident occurred. In fact, I was in the Church when my brother called to inform me that Prof has been kidnapped. I came back and discovered that the compound was deserted. I was saddened.

“This morning (Saturday) the house boy of the Prof brought me the Prof’s phone that he picked it on Friday outside the house after the kidnap on Thursday.

“We wondered how the phone was found when Police had searched everywhere and saw no other thing apart from the undispensed bullet found in ground.

“He said the house boy always came in whenever the victim comes back from abroad to assist him in doing house chores such as facing water and doing other things.

“He always leaves before night but on Thursday, I was told that he was seen around the compound until 10pm when the victim was kidnapped. The kidnappers have not communicated with the family since they could not lay hands on the phone of the victim” he said.

The Engineer explained that a lady who always goes out with the victim was seen late in the night of Thursday as she claimed that she went out with the victim. “The kidnappers took him away in their car while his car was parked in the garage” he stated.

Efforts to speak with the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Ms Irene Ugbo on Saturday were not possible as her line was off.

      All these are coming up because he played the philanthropist that he is by rescuing Nigerians in distress all the way from South Africa back to Nigeria and people love his unlimited efforts to unite Nigeria. Because of that singular act he has pose a treat to cabals who suck Nigerians dry, import hardship and are never ready to help a single soul
