He decried the abduction of Nwosu as a
"devilish" and "barbaric" act.
Metuh said the party's thoughts and prayers went for the
safe return of Nwosu and other victims of this social vice.
PDP expressed confidence that the security forces would
track down the abductors and expose those behind the crime.
The opposition declared its support for policies
undertaken by the Federal Government to limit to scourge of kidnappings and
other criminal activities.
“We stand together with the government against all
enemies perpetrating criminal acts against lives and property in our dear
nation,” Metuh said.
