Benue commissioner’s wife missing -Police

The wife of Commissioner for Lands and Survey in Benue State, Mrs Ann Unenge, has been kidnapped.

The wife of the Commissioner, according to a source, was kidnapped on Thursday about 6:00 pm.

The source said, “Mrs Ann Unenger I must have been trailed by her abductors because she was kidnapped about 6 pm on Thursday shortly after she returned to town from Daudu community where she had gone to visit her parents.”

The kidnappers, according to a family source, also took away a new model Toyota Highlander which she was driving at the time of the kidnap.

It was learnt that the woman attempted to break free from her abductors by trying to open the vehicle door around the traffic light near the popular B Division Police Station but her abductors opened fire to scare people away.

Sources said she started raising alarm to draw the attention of people to her plight but the abductors sped off with her before help could come.

At the time of this report, it was not known if the abductors had reached out to the family or demanded ransom.

When contacted, the Benue State Police Public Relations Officer, Catherine Anene, said a case of a missing person and not abduction was reported to the police by her family.
