Tension As Wife of Former House of Reps Member, 6 Others Kidnapped In Calabar
There is palpable tension in Calabar as some armed men suspected to be kidnappers on Sunday, November 15, invaded the residence of wife of former house of representatives at Uyanga, in Akamkpa local government area of the Cross River state, at about 10pm, shot sporadically in the air before making away with the victim.
Weetalknaija.com.ng confirmed that, Mrs. Eno is the wife of Hon. Patrick Orok Agbor, former House of Representatives member in Cross River.
Paradisenews gathered that the gunmen numbering about 6 stormed the victims home yesterday, at Uyanga, in Akamkpa local government area of the state, at about 10pm, shot sporadically in the air before making away with the victim.
According to a close family source, “the kidnappers came in fully armed with face masks, forced themselves into our compound and abducted her.
The abductors are yet to contact us, and no ransom has been asked,” the source added.
The victim (Eno Patrick Orok) is a 60 year old, hypertensive and asthmatic patient and a staff of Federal Training Institute, Calabar.
Meanwhile, the source further disclosed that security agents have been contacted on the situation.
Efforts to reach the police for further details, proved abortive, as calls to the mobile phone of the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Irene Ugbo, was left unpicked.
Meanwhile, Weetalknaija.com.ng had previously reported that some Kidnappers had abducted over persons within one week.
Security sources are also informing CrossRiverWatch that there has been six kidnap cases within the last one week with three around Edim Otop street alone. Edim Otop is in Calabar Municipal, opposite the Akim navy barracks.
The sources further expressed worry that the department responsible for hunting down these criminals are suffering low morale and have slowed down their activities owing to the fact that several other arrested kidnappers have not been diligently prosecuted and sent to prison under the new Anti- Cultism law of Cross River state but are rather usually set free and sent back into the system without any retribution.
