The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) who confirmed the kidnap to Newsmen said: “The Police has already deployed IG’s rapid response team to track and arrest the culprits, and to also rescue the victim.”
One of the family members, Francis Samuel, who witnessed the abduction of the Permanent Secretary, stated: “The gunmen stormed the residence located at Clark’s Quarters, opposite Anglican Cathedral, at about 3:20 am, on Wednesday (today), and abducted him.
“The gunmen abducted the Permanent Secretary, and took away his handset and that of his wife. We tried to no avail to contact the Permanent Secretary through his phone number, but the abductors refused to pick our calls. As of the time we are speaking, the abductors have not contacted us”, Francis said.
