Another Cross River Broadcasting Corporation (CRBC) staff has been abducted in Calabar, Cross River State capital, barely one year when a staff was kidnapped.

Mrs. Glory Otu, Assistant Director, Monitoring Unit CRBC, was kidnapped on Monday, November 25, 2019, at about 9pm in her residence at Edim Otop, Calabar Municipality Local Government Area.

The Acting General Manager, Mr. Eniang Ndem, when contacted lamented the action of the kidnappers saying it was one kidnap too many.

“Mrs. Glory Otu was kidnapped around 9pm at her house at Njahasang area. She is Head of Monitoring Unit of the Cross River Broadcasting Corporation, Radio and Television services.

“She was kidnapped on Monday. She was at work on Monday and went home after work like others. The incident occurred at about 9pm in the night when about six (6) heavily armed men who went to her house at Njahasang with guns and machetes, knocked on her gate and pretend as if they want to buy water.

“Unknowingly to her, she opened her gate and went out to attend to them but the suspects, surrendered her ordered her in, ransacked the house, collected her phones and other properties and demanded for N100, 000.

“She offered them N20, 000 as the only money available at that time; they collected it and also went away with her. Upon the shout, nobody went for rescue.

“Consequently, on Tuesday, the alleged kidnappers called one of the daughters of the victim and confirmed that their mother was with them and demanded for 3 million Naira ransom but the family had told them that they have no such money. We don’t know what next,” Ndem said.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Cross River State, DSP Irene Ugbo on phone confirmed to Paradise News saying “Our men are working on ways of getting the victim released.”

Mrs. Otu is the second staff of CRBC kidnapped within one year. First, it was one Peter Tex Etim who hasn’t been released or whereabouts known even to the Police.
