Twenty-four hours after some unknown gunmen abducted the Public Relations officer of the Edo state command of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Mrs Bridget Esene, her abductors are yet to make any contact with the family.
A check by Standard Gazette crime correspondent Festus Alenkhe revealed that there is tension among the family members and police officers and men of the Edo state command of the Nigerian Immigration service.
“The refusal by the kidnappers to call the family members for talks calls for concern,” says a family source.
Standard Gazette first reported the news of the abduction on Sunday morning.
Mrs Bridget Esene was abducted in Ikhueniro near Benin City and the kidnapped zoomed off through the Sapele road end of the Benin Bypass as it suggests that she must have been taken towards Delta state.
Contacted, Edo state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chidi Nwabuzor said the police received the report of the kidnap as he called for calm.
