Spokesperson of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) in Edo State, Bridget Esene, has been reportedly abducted by unknown gunmen.
Mrs. Esene was whisked away by the assailants on Sunday morning at the premises of an undisclosed Christian worship centre in the Agbor road area of Benin city, an official said.
She was reportedly trailed and yanked off her car by her captors, who scurried into a waiting vehicle with their victim.
“She was abducted at her church premises, around Agbor road area, this morning,” a source at the NIS said. “Her whereabouts is yet unknown, as her abductors are yet to speak with her family.”
The source, who wished to be anonymous, added: “Her car has been recovered where it was dumped at Agbor road bye pass area, and we learnt that her abductors headed towards the Benin – Auchi road axis, off the by-pass.”
The police in Edo have yet to confirm or deny the abduction.
