PDP concerned at rampant abductions

15 September 2015, 08:43Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has decried the spate of abductions in the country.

This follows the kidnapping of the wife of a media executive in Lagos.

The abduction of Toyin Nwosu came days after the abduction of a prominent journalist, who has since been freed, in Rivers State.

"PDP is deeply worried by the recent spate of abductions in the country. The perpetrators cannot justify their actions under any guise whatsoever,” PDP spokesman, Olisa Metuh, said.

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.
