Bank Manager kidnapped by suspected gunmen dressed in Military camouflaged, Police reacts

The Bayelsa State Police Command has confirmed the abduction of the Operations Manager of Sterling Bank, Mrs Nneka Enuka UgoAnochie.

The state Commissioner of Police, Romokere Ibani, confirmed the incident during a press briefing at the command’s headquarters on Tuesday.

He said: “On the 16th of June, at 8 am, four armed men dressed in military camouflage, operating with a red Lexus jeep, abducted Mrs Nneka Enuka UgoAnochie, along Otiotio Road, in Yenagoa Local Government Area, while driving to her office.”

“The police were alerted, and we embarked on a rescue mission, but the kidnappers abandoned their vehicle and whisked away their victim; the vehicle with registration number BWR 552 AW was recovered on East-West Road, and we have intensified our efforts in ensuring that she is rescued unhurt.”


According to the Daily Post, security sources said the woman had been warned several times to relocate from her area of residence, which is adjacent to the residence of the arrested celebrated kidnappers, John Ewa, aka John Lyon, and Emmanuel Agase.

Operatives of Operation Puff Adder and the Anti-Kidnapping Squad of the State Police Command had reportedly provided security to her residence, but the arrangement was altered after she complained about the cost of logistics.

One of the sources said that the abduction may be the handiwork of the remaining members of the celebrity kidnapper gang.

“We warned her to relocate for some time because our intelligence report showed that she was being monitored to be abducted,” he stated.
