Gunmen Kidnapped Akwa ‘Ibom Couple, abandon infant twins

An Akwa Ibom couple elder Nyaknobong Etuk and his wife have been reportedly abducted by gunmen in front of the gate of their residence located at Akpasak Estate, Mbiabong Off Oron Road, Uyo.

Nigeriacrime.com learned that the couple’s abductors left their infant twins abandoned.

It was gathered, yesterday, that the couple native of Oruk Anam LGA, went shopping along Oron Road within Uyo and left their twin babies in the care of their house help, whose identity was not disclosed at press time.

When they returned home that Sunday evening and blew their horn for some minutes, nobody came to open the gate for them, until the suspected kidnappers arrived in a mini-bus decorated with camouflage tarpaulin, and ordered them out of their car.

They whisked them away in their minibus to an unknown destination.

A family source, who spoke to newsmen in confidence, expressed concern that the twins dedicated in the church about six months ago cried uncontrollably since the incident occurred.

The source added that the babies even refuse other people cuddling, or feeding them.

The suspected kidnappers have not made contact with the victims’ families for any ransom.

However, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Odiko MacDon confirmed the kidnap of the couple to some newsmen, yesterday.

His words are aware of the kidnap incident of the Director of Finance and his wife. The matter had been reported to us and the state Commissioner of Police, Waheed Ayilara has directed the appropriate unit in the police force to investigate the matter with a view to rescuing the victims.

‘‘We are on top of the situation. In a short time, the kidnappers would be arrested and brought to book. We are not leaving any stone unturned in an effort to secure the lives and property of the Akwa Ibom people.

“Kidnapping is a short-lived crime. I can assure you that very soon, the victims will be rescued and reunited with their families.’’
