The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Rivers State Council, has raised the alarm over the kidnap of its member, Mrs Priestba Anthony Nwokocha, and called on security agencies to ensure her immediate rescue.
The Union was informed that Mrs Nwokocha who is Director of News, Rivers State Broadcasting Corporation, was allegedly whisked away on Friday night by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.
She was abducted at a gun point at about 8:00pm after close of work along Ogonigba/ Elelenwo bridge leading to the old Slaughter Market in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
In a statement jointly signed by the Chairman, Stanley Job Stanley and Secretary, Ike Wigodo, NUJ condemned the alleged kidnap, describing it as inhuman, wicked and insensitive especially against a journalist working for the good of the society.
The statement, therefore, urged the security agencies in the State to ensure the unconditional rescue of Mrs Nwokocha to enable her reunite with her family and continue her service to the society.
The Union also charged the security agencies to ensure the arrest of Nwokocha's abductors and bring them to book to serve as a deterrent to other criminals in the state.
The statement commended the Commissioner of Police, CP Nwonyi, for improving on security in the State in the last three months and urged him not to relent on his efforts.
