Gunmen Abduct Channels TV Reporter, Demand N30m Ransom

On Thursday night, gunmen kidnapped a journalist and reporter with Channels Television, Mr Joshua Rogers, at his residence in Rumuosi in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State

Rogers, who reports on activities at the Rivers State Government House, was followed home from work.

The attackers approached him before he could get out of his car, threatened him with a gun, and drove him away along with his vehicle to an unknown location around 9 pm.

A source, preferring anonymity, mentioned that Rogers had covered an event earlier in Ndoni, where Governor Siminalayi Fubara inaugurated a Primary Healthcare Centre sponsored by the PAMO Educational Foundation.

The kidnappers have contacted Rogers’ wife, demanding N30 million ransom for his release.

However, the State Police Command spokesperson, Grace Iringe-Koko, is yet to confirm the incident as of the time of this report.
