Channels TV Reporter Abducted In Rivers

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting 

A journalist and reporter with the Channels Television, Lagos, Mr Joshua Rogers, has been abducted from his residence in Rumuosi, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State

Gunmen yet to be identified did the odious job on Thursday night when the reporter was reportedly returning from a state assignment.

Rogers, who covers the Rivers State Government House for his organization, was reportedly trailed after closing from work to his home.

The assailants intercepted him before he could exit his car at gunpoint and forcibly took him away in his vehicle to an undisclosed location around 9:00 p.m.

Rogers was said to have earlier covered an event in Ndoni, Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Area of the state, where Governor Siminalayi Fubara had inaugurated a Primary Healthcare Centre built and donated by the PAMO Educational Foundation, founded by former Rivers governor, Dr. Peter Odili.

The abductors are said to have contacted Rogers’ wife, demanding a ransom of N30 million for his release.

No word from the Rivers State Police Command yet as of Friday morning.
