Mr. Bassey also told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the police were on top of the situation.

Mr. Ekpenyong-Ekpe was kidnapped at about 4a.m on Friday by unknown gunmen who raided his Creek Town home in Odukpani Local Government Area.

A relative of the man, Etim Edet, told NAN that the gunmen gained access to the area in a boat through the creek.

Mr. Edet said, “several armed men just burst into his house at about 4 a.m Friday morning and whisked him away through the narrow canal here.

“They gained access through the creek and after abducting him, they disappeared through the creeks also. Soldiers have been sent to the area as we speak”.

There was no word from the abductors by late Saturday, another family source said.
