KIDNAPPERS have abducted a female Superintendent of Police in Delta State.
The senior Police officer, said to be the second-in-command at one of the divisions in Asaba, the state capital, was kidnapped along Ogwashi-Uku-Asaba Road on her way to work on Monday. Detectives have been on the manhunt for her abductors since the incident, but at press time yesterday, she was still missing.
A Police source told Vanguard: “The Police officer is still with the kidnappers, nobody knows for now where they took her to. “The Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Mustafa, has given directive that everywhere should be combed for the abducted officer and the kidnappers. Nobody is at rest now, as the Commissioner said he wants her out of anywhere she was taken to.” Police Public Relations Officer, Delta State Command, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, could not be reached for comment on the development.
Last month, six suspected kidnappers stormed a shop located at Spirit and Life Bible Church, Akpu Junction, Asaba, and whisked a housewife, Mrs. Francisca Semiteje, to an unknown destination in her black Toyota Corolla car. Her vehicle was recovered a day later at Ani Edozie Street, off Asaba Secondary School, Asaba, while she was released after payment of ransom by her family.
