Soldiers Allegedly Abduct Akwa Ibom Governor’s Aide



Group seeks support for Gov. Udom Emmanuel's second term bid

Soldiers allegedly sent by the GOC of the 6 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General Jamil Sarham, have abducted the Senior Special Adviser on Security Matters to Governor Udom Emmanuel, Capt. Iniobong Ekong (Rtd).

Ekong was said to have been picked up Friday midnight on a petition purportedly written by Senator Godswill Akpabio.

The Commissioner for Information, Akwa Ibom State, Charles Udoh who confirmed the abduction said Capt. Ekong was picked last night to an unknown location in Port Harcourt.

Udoh stated that they were yet to establish contact with his abductors.

“The Chief of Army Staff has said that the Military had no role to play in the elections. When did it become the duty of the Army to investigate petitions, arrest and detain people?” he queried.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Odiko McDon said the police was yet to receive such information.
