Dr. Ikongshul Alorye, a House Officer in the Department of Accident and Emergency of the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH) was kidnapped on Monday in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.

This is happening less than a week after. Dr. Vivien Otu, kidnapped in the last week of August, was released.

Dr. Alorye, a native of Obudu Local Government Area in northern Cross River State, was kidnapped at about 9:30AM at Atimbo axis of Calabar by people who disguised as policemen.

However, she has since been released after she convinced her abductors that she was a nursing mother.

She was abandoned along the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan bypass popularly referred to as Airport bypass at about 6:00PM on Monday evening.

Cash sums and her devices were taken from her and she has remained in police custody who say they are awaiting confirmation of identity from her family members before she is released.
