A medical doctor has been kidnapped in Akwa Ibom state.
The doctor identified as Dr. Felix Ekpo was abducted yesterday, Tuesday at a government hospital in the state. The kidnappers are demanding N2.5 million for his release. A Twitter user who shared the story wrote: Dr Felix Ekpo was kidnapped today at a govt hospital in Mkpat Enin LGA, Akwa Ibom state.He was kidnapped @10am 22/2/22 within the hospital premises and whisked away in his car.This man drives 3hrs daily to go consult his patients in the village and this is the reward he got.If you have any information that could lead to his safe release or help in any way. Pls DM.Update: Ransom has been set at 2.5million naira.The most disheartening part of this is that, Dr Ekpo and his colleagues were gearing up for a free medical and subsidized surgical outreach for this same community.Only to meet these criminals who are most likely locals.
