The police in Rivers State said on Tuesday that the white Venza car used by the abductors of a Port Harcourt-based female lawyer, Paullete Ajayi, belonged to another kidnapped victim.
The Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, stated this when the task force set up by the Nigerian Bar Association to secure the release of the young female lawyer visited him at his office in Port Harcourt.
Recall that Ajayi was kidnapped from her residence by gunmen, who were dressed in military uniform, on Sunday.
Mukan said, “One woman reported that her husband left home and did not come back. We asked her some vital questions and we understand that her husband’s car was the one that was snatched. He too was abducted and they use the car to abduct Bisola (Ajayi).
“We were able to track her phones. Efforts have been intensified to ensure her unconditional release.
“Be assured that it is our responsibility to protect every citizen.”
Earlier, the leader of the NBA delegation and first vice-president of the association, John Martins, informed the police boss that the team would collaborate with security agencies to secure the release of their colleague.
