How 10 Gunmen succesfully kidnapped Okonjo Iweala’s mum…

Okonjo Iweala’s mother has been kidnapped! 
82 year old Professor Kanene Okonjo,  mother of the
Minister of Finance, Okonjo-Iweala, was on Sunday abducted at
the gate of the palace of the traditional ruler of Ogwashi-Uku, Delta
State, Prof. Chukwuka Okonjo, who is her husband.
 She was abducted at 1.47pm by a gang of armed men who seized
her at the gate of the palace at Ogbe-ofu and took her away, when her
husband travelled out of the town.
The kidnappers, numbering about 10, were
said to be lurking around the palace until the woman and her maid came
down to offer some drinks to workers at the gate.

Eyewitness said as soon as the woman
came down from the main building, towards the gate, the criminals also
moved in from the gate to grab and push her into a waiting Golf
Volkswagen car.
Local media report that one of them went
upstairs to collect the woman’s handbag. 
State Police Public Relations Officer,
Mr. Charles Muoka, who confirmed the kidnap on Sunday, said the police had collected information that
would be useful enough to track down the kidnappers.
Her husband, Obi Chukwuka Okonjo, a retired professor of Economics, is the traditional ruler of Ogwashi-Uku.
The kidnappers are yet to make contact with the family of their victim.
To be candid, our government only responds to problems if
people in government start having the same problem.
Now that the mother of GEJ’s most powerful minister has
been kidnapped, maybe , just maybe the reality of how unsafe our country
is will dawn on them!!!
