The Chairman of the campaign committee of four time federal lawmaker, Rep. Essien Ayi, Mr. Orok Iban has been kidnapped in what looks to be a new twist in the upsurge of crime rate in Cross River ahead of the general elections.

Mr. Iban was kidnapped in the wee hours of Wednesday last week in Calabar.

The Secretary of the Mr. Ayi’s campaign organization, Mr. Francis Ekpo confirmed the incident to CrossRiverWatch. According to him, the kidnappers are yet to make contact and demand for ransom for Mr. Iban who has been in captivity for 8 days now.

In a related development, ace broadcaster, Mr. PeterTex Etim has spent 41 days in captivity with no word concerning his state since he was kidnapped in the morning of January 11, 2019.

CrossRiverWatch had reported that the journalist popularly referred to as “The Godfada” was taken away by unknown men shortly after leaving his home for work.

His car which was taken away is said to have been found a few days later while the kidnappers are said to have preferred talking to one of his child.

CrossRiverWatch gathered that the ransom was paid as demanded by the kidnappers while the family and some media professionals have continuously called for journalists to desist from reporting or making findings concerning his kidnap.
