Unknown gunmen has taken hostage a popular broadcaster with the Cross River Broadcasting Corporation (CRBC), Petertex Etim aka The Godfather, in Calabar on Friday.
Naija News understands that the broadcaster was kidnapped while preparing for work in his home along Chamley Street in Calabar South by the kidnappers.
DSP Irene Ugbo, the spokesperson of the state police command, while confirming the development said: ”We are aware of it and we are working on it,”
“He was supposed to read the news on the radio this morning, but of course could not anymore because of the kidnapping. He is not a politician or involved in any controversy. He is such an easygoing guy. So why should something like this happen to him? Could it be a mistaken identity? No one knows. His phone number has been switched off since and the kidnappers have not gotten in touch yet. It is really unfortunate,” a source close to him said.
