The Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of zone 6, Calabar, Usman Sule Gomna has ordered an investigation into the abduction of former Senator Effiong Nelson and a medical doctor, Nsidibe Umana in Akwa Ibom State

Effiong, who represented Akwa Ibom south was abducted in his lounge at Oron Road, Uyo Akwa Ibom State two weeks ago while Doctor Umana was abducted in his residence at Oruk Anam local council area of the State the following week.

The AIG during a familiarisation tour in Akwa Ibom State Command on Friday ordered the Commissioner, Andy Amiengheme to put up a crack team to trail the abductors of the two victims in the state.

AIG Gomna gave the charge following a request by the chairman of the state chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association, Dr Ime Sylvester Udoh for the rescue of his member during a meeting with security stakeholders in the state.

He said, “Before I came here, I had directed the CP of the command, Andrew Amiengheme, to intensify efforts to see how he can be rescued”.

He reiterated the commitment of the zone in tackling crime and criminality and called on stakeholders to continue to cooperate with the police by revealing useful information that could help in tackling the crime rates in the states.

Responding to the kidnap of the medical doctor, the Akwa Ibom State Commissioner of Police, CP Amiengheme said a manhunt has already been put in place to effect the release of the doctor

His words, “Our men are in the field to ensure the release of that young doctor. Unfortunately, the abductors are asking for N20m and where will the family get such an amount of money from. That is part of the societal problems, and we are asking the stakeholders to quickly expose and not to give them a cover.”

On the abduction of the Ex-senator, the CP said ” We are very much on top of the situation. Care must be taken to protect his life in the first instance. We must not do anything that will jeopardise his life, a lot has been done, we are observing some restraints so that he is not killed and his perpetrators brought to book.”

The AIG, however, thanked stakeholders in the state for upholding peace and urged them to sustain it and avail the police of useful information to tackle crime and criminalities.
