Bolt driver, female passenger abducted in Calabar

A driver with an e-hailing company, Bolt, was on Tuesday reported to be abducted alongside a female passenger in Calabar, Cross River.

The incident was said to have occurred at the staff quarters of the University of Calabar, the destination of the driver.

The driver, identified as Jeremiah Enya, was said to be with three passengers when the incident occurred.

While he was abducted with a female passenger, the two others were spared.

It was gathered that the kidnappers whisked their two victims away in the car they came with while they abandoned the Bolt driver’s car.

Staff of the university have of recent become targets for kidnappers in Calabar.

The university’s Director of Servicom, Prof. Patrick Egaga, was only a fortnight ago, abducted at his residence in the staff quarters.

His abductors reduced their ransom from the earlier N50 million demanded to N15 million, a demand yet to be met by his family.

Meanwhile, spokesperson for the state Police Command, SP Irene Ugbo, declined comment on the matter as she had not been briefed on the incident.
