Gunmen abduct Channels TV reporter in Imo

11 April 2016, 21:35

Owerri -  A journalist working with Channels Television has been abducted by unknown gunmen in Imo State

The journalist identified as Tope Kutiyi, who is the correspondent for Imo, was kidnapped in the early hours of Monday.

He was jolted from his sleep by the rampaging hoodlums, after they successfully scaled through the perimeter fence of his residence in Federal Housing Estate, Umuguma, and whisked away to an unknown destination by his captors.

The kidnappers have since made a ransom demand of N15 million for the release of the journalist.

Reacting to abduction, Governor Rochas Okorocha condemned the abduction, describing it as an act of mistaken identity

Okorocha, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary (CPS) Sam Onwuemeodo, said the young man is only a reporter who cannot be said to have been kidnapped because of money.

He noted that only those behind the act know why they decided to inconvenience the reporter and his family.

He urged those holding the reporter to release him to reunite with his family, adding that a reporter cannot afford to pay any ransom.
