Gunmen abduct C'River Commissioner for Water Resources

Unidentified gunmen on Sunday abducted Gabriel Odu-Orji, the Cross River Commissioner for Water Resources, at Effionawan Street on Mayne Avenue in Calabar South.

An eyewitness, James Ibri, said that five gunmen kidnapped Mr. Odu-Orji as he was about to enter a restaurant.

"At around 12 noon today, I was in front of a restaurant waiting for a friend when the Commissioner for Water Resources stepped down and was approaching the restaurant," Mr. Ibri said.

"Before he could get into the restaurant, some five well-armed men came in a blue Audi, parked their car by the road side and ordered the commissioner into his car and drove away."

ASP Irene Ugbo, the State Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident.
