Gunmen in Port Harcourt have abducted a lecturer with the University of Port Harcourt, Dr Jones Ayuwo, and a first-class traditional ruler in Rivers State. Ayuwo of the department of Linguistics and Communications Studies in UNIPORT was abducted last Sunday night along the Andoni-Ogoni road while returning from the Local Government Area of Andoni after a function by his Local Language Bible Translation committee which he serves as the secretary.

Three journalists with the Rivers State Government-owned Television who went for coverage of the event were also attacked with their valuables and camera were taken from them. At about the same time the University of Port Harcourt lecturer was abducted, gunmen also went to the palace of a First Class Traditional Ruler, King Aaron Ikuru of Ikuru Town in Andoni Local Government Area and took him away.

These attacks come barely two weeks after the abduction of a female journalist with The Nigeria Television Authority in Rivers State and they make clear the task ahead for the new Commissioner of Police, Eboka Friday, who assumed duty last Friday, February 19
