The spokesperson of the Nigeria Immigration Service in Edo State, Bridget Esene, has reportedly been abducted by gunmen.
An official of the immigration service said Mrs. Esene was abducted Sunday morning on her way to church.
Reports say the gunmen reportedly trailed her to Iqueniro area, off Agbor Road, in the state capital, dragged her out of her car and took her into their waiting vehicle.
An official of the Nigeria Immigration Service who confirmed the kidnap said; “Her whereabouts is yet unknown, as her abductors are yet to speak with her family.
“Her car has been recovered where it was dumped at Agbor road by-pass area and we learnt her abductors headed towards Benin – Auchi road axis, off the by-pass”.
The police spokesperson in the state, Chidi Nwabuzor, however, did not confirm or deny the abduction.
