Suspected gunmen have kidnapped Bridget Esene, spokeswoman of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) in Edo State.
According to NAN, Esene was kidnapped on her way to church in Benin, the State capital, on Sunday.
The gunmen reportedly trailed her to Iqueniro area of Benin, dragged her out of the car, and whisked her into a waiting vehicle.
“She was kidnapped at her church premises, around Agbor road area, this morning. Her whereabouts is yet unknown, as her abductors are yet to speak with her family,” the source said.
“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 source added.
Chidi Nwabuzor, the Edo police command spokesman, neither confirmed nor denied the abduction, saying he is not in a position to speak on the matter.
