Protests as Obiano's commissioner who resigned and was allegedly kidnapped days after is still missing

Former Anambra Commissioner for Trade and Commerce Dr Christian Madubuko is yet to be seen 13 days after he was allegedly kidnapped.

Hundreds of his kindred in Anaku staged a protest over the development on Tuesday.

Madubuko was allegedly kidnapped few days after he resigned from the administration of Governor Willie Obiano.

His kinsmen said they had to take to the streets because the signals they were receiving from security operatives were not encouraging.

They displayed placards reading: “Anaku people plead for the rescue of their son”; “We are pleading for his release”; “Is Anambra still the safest state?” among others.

Addressing reporters at Anaku, his elder brother, Mr. Richard Madubuko, said his brother had been missing for the past 13 days

According to him: “For 13 days, our brother has been missing. Initially, we thought he would resurface after a day or two, but it has come to a stage we are confused.

“We have therefore decided to let the world know that our brother has been missing.

“We have written to the Commissioner of Police without any response and we decided to let the world know what we are passing through.

“We want security agencies to help us locate him wherever he is. The police told us they do not know his where about and we are begging them to assist us in finding him.

“We have made enquires in government and the response has always been that we should calm down and that government will intervene.

“But for 13 days, we have not heard from him or from government and the security operatives. We are confused and we do not know what other steps to take.

“Our people have decided to continue protesting until we are told the where about of our brother. We spoke with him last on 12th January and since then, we do not know if he is kidnapped or not.

“While we are not suspecting anybody, we plead that whoever that knows his where about should let his family and community know.”
