Gunmen kidnap naval officer, rating in Rivers

A naval officer and a rating have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen
in Rumuji axis of  Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The officer and the rating, whose name could not be ascertained immediately, were said to be on their way to Sapele in Delta State before they were waylaid and taken away by the unknown gunmen.
The incident, according to a source, occurred at about 4pm on Monday as the captors took them to a yet-to-be identified destination.
A navy source, who confirmed the abduction of the officer and the rating, told The PUNCH that the duo’s whereabouts had not been ascertained.
The source explained that a call had since been put across to the naval base of the victims while the search for them continued.
“I received a call today and was told that a naval officer and a rating were kidnapped. The officer and the rating were on their way to Sapele when they were abducted in Emohua.
“Their (officer and rating) command is not in Rivers State. It is in Delta State and I have put a call across to tell them about the development, but no response yet,” the navy source added.
