Not Again! Gunmen Abduct Delta Commissione's Wife (Photo)

 
Some gun-wielding kidnappers have abducted Mrs. Theresa Sakpra, the wife of the Delta State Commissioner for Special Duties, Chief Henry Sakpra, according to a report by Punch. The woman was whisked away around Ekete Inland Junction, along DSC Expressway, in the Udu Local Government Area of the state.
Theresa was abducted by the hoodlums on her way home from her shop at about 6.15pm last Thursday, after dropping one of her salesgirls along the expressway. She was said to have been taken to an unknown destination.
 
The sad story was confirmed by a political associate of the commissioner, who pleaded not to be identified. “She was taken away in her car, but the vehicle was later recovered the following day along the Effurun/Ughelli end of the East-West Road,” he added.
 
However, youths under the aegis of Udu Youth Council have appealed to the hoodlums to release the victim without further delay, describing the spate of kidnapping in the state as worrisome.
 
The youths, in a statement by their President, Mr. Otito Yembra, and three others, stated that the abduction of Sakpra’s wife was not only a cowardly act, “but a desperate action from characters that seek to profit from their criminal conduct.”
 
The youths added that the act was also a sore reminder of the growing resurgence of criminality in Urhobo land and Udu in particular.
 
“We join friends, family and other well-meaning Nigerians in calling on the abductors of the respected Mrs. Theresa Sakpra to immediately release her unconditionally and unhurt. We are also calling on the security agencies to find Mrs. Theresa Sakpra without any delay,” the statement read in part.
 
The spokesman for the Delta State Police Command, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, declined to speak on the incident, but a senior police officer in the command confirmed the abduction of the commissioner’s wife.
 
Effort to speak to the state Commissioner of Police, Zanna Ibrahim, proved abortive as calls and text messages to his telephone line were neither picked nor replied to.
