In the late hours of Sunday, unknown gunmen reportedly kidnapped wife of a former House of Representatives member in Cross River, Patrick Orok Agbor.
One of the daughters of the former lawmaker who served in Akampka constituency from 1999 to 2003 confirmed the abduction to newsmen on Monday morning.
According to her; “Good morning. Please, my mother, Eno Patrick Orok, was kidnapped Sunday, at about 10 pm from our home, at Uyanga, Akamkpa LGA. About 6 gunmen, fully armed with face masks, forced themselves into our compound and abducted her.
“She is about 60 years old. Works at Federal Training Institute Calabar, besides Roadsafety office Marian.”
It was learnt that the abductors are yet to contact the family as at press time.
However, the Nigeria Police Force and a closet Army checkpoint at Odukpani area of the state have been informed about the incident.
Efforts to reach the security operatives for comments as at press time proved abortive.
