Shooters suspected to be kidnappers have abducted Oscar Ofuka, the special adviser to Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State on cocoa production.
the incident happened on Tuesday morning when the gunmen numbering about ten invaded Cross River Broadcasting Corporation (CRBC) and whisked away from the victim.
It was learned that the aide was at the RRBC premises to attend a flag-off of a “cocoa event” by the state’s deputy governor Ivara Esu.
The state’s police commissioner, Kayode Sikiru, who confirmed the incident to reporters in Calabar, said he had launched a search to track the vehicle and rescue the victim unhurt.
A journalist at the broadcast cooperation, Mr. Sunny Inah, who was at the scene, also confirmed the incident, saying Ofuka was nabbed by some men in police uniform.
