Gunmen Abduct A’Ibom Monarch

The Akwa Ibom State Police Command on Sunday confirmed the abduction of the paramount ruler of Mbo Local Government Area, HRM Ogwong A Abang, by yet-to-identified gunmen in his palace at Ebughu on Saturday

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Timfon John who confirmed the incident while speaking with our correspondent on Sunday said that the command is working round the clock to ensure an unconditional and timely release of the monarch.

“We received the information yesterday (Saturday) and the police are working round the clock already to ensure that the monarch regains freedom,” the PPRO said.

It was gathered that the monarch was kidnapped at 9 pm on that fateful day

The abduction is coming at the heels of doctors in the state withdrawing their services in solidarity with the abduction of their colleague, Dr John Robbin Esu in Oron, who is still languishing in captivity more than 15 days ago

The kidnap of the monarch has raised more concern over the collapsed security architecture which has made the community the most vulnerable to criminal activities in recent times.
