Senator Nelson Effiong Kidnapped
OP: September 06, 2021, 08:40:26 PM
The Police have confirmed the kidnapping of Sen. Nelson Effiong, who represented Eket Senatorial District in the eighth Senate.

According to the Public Relations Officer of the Akwa Ibom State Police Command, Odiko Macdon, the senator “was kidnapped by unknown gunmen at a popular drinking spot on Oron Road, Uyo” at about 10 PM on Sunday, September 5.

He said that the command would ensure that the perpetrators were brought to book and also secure the release of the former member of the Nigerian senate as soon as possible.

A source, who sought anonymity, said that Sen. Effiong was kidnapped at a lounge he owns on Oron Road in Uyo by three armed hoodlums.

The abductors, according to eyewitnesses, stormed the lounge in a Toyota Camry saloon car and started shooting sporadically, sending customers and guests to scamper for safety before they made straight for the former lawmaker.
