Gunmen Assault Radio Station In Imo State, Kidnap On-Air Personality
Prof Jachimike Adiele, an On-Air Personality (OAP) with Boss Radio 98.9FM in Owerri, Imo State, has reportedly been kidnapped by gunmen.
He was said to have been kidnapped from the radio station on Saturday morning after anchoring a program.
Harriet Ijeomah, co-host, made the announcement on her well-known Facebook page.
“This is to inform the members of the public and peace-loving people of Imo State that after the Program “THE FORUM” some unidentified armed men stormed the premises of Boss Radio, Owerri, and abducted my Co-Host of the forum, Prof. Jachimike Adiele to an undisclosed location.
“We cannot confirm his whereabouts or his present state. I was just lucky,” co-host Ijeomah wrote.
Meanwhile, attempts to obtain a response from the Imo State Police Command were futile. Mike Abattam, the Command’s spokesman, could not be reached by phone because he did not pick up.
