Unknown gunmen yesterday struck at kri Itam in Itu Local Government of Akwa Ibom State.
They snatched the wife of former Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Yingi Edunam.
Sources said Mrs. Edunam was returning home from an appointment when the hoodlums attacked her at the entrance of her house.
The gunmen were said to have escaped in a black Mercedes Benz.
Her husband, Dr. Effiong Edunam, confirmed the incident.
He said the abductors threw his young daughter out of the vehicle.
She had accompanied her mother on the errand.
The kidnappers also made away with their victim’s vehicle.
Edunam, who is a supporter of Senator Helen Esuene, ruled out any political undertone in the kidnap.
He said the elections are over and his candidate had no case against her in the tribunal.
His words: “I am living here in the outskirts of town. I am living my quiet life and I am surprised that this is happening in front of my house.”
The husband said the kidnappers have contacted the family and are demanding N100millon.
He called on the law enforcement agencies to come to his rescue, saying there is no way he could raise the money.
Police spokesman Onyeka Orji said he was not aware of the incident.
