Akwa Ibom Monarch

GUNMEN have reportedly abducted the Paramount Ruler in Mbo Local Government Area (LGA) of Akwa Ibom state, HRM Ogwong Okon A. Abang, from his palace at Ebughu.

 Newsextra24 learnt that the monarch’s kidnap comes barely three weeks after doctors in the state raised an alarm over the kidnap of their colleague, Dr John Robbin Esu, who has remained in the kidnapper’s den despite the public outcry.

Similarly, the wife of a prominent political figure in the state, Asukwo Eweme Ulap Okon, also known as Levile, was also abducted in Oron last week, raising more concern over the security situation in the state.

According to Vanguard, the traditional monarch of Mbo LGA was abducted at about 9pm on Saturday.

While the Akwa Ibom State Police Command is yet to issue a statement on the monarch’s abduction, the Commissioner of Police, CP Waheed Ayilara, and other service Commanders have reportedly moved to the Ebughu Palace of the victim.
