Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted a businesswoman identified as Christiana Bernard, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
According to the Punch Bernard, an ex-beauty queen who owns a fashion store, was driving into her compound in the NTA area of Port Harcourt on Wednesday, November 10, when she was attacked by the gunmen.
It was gathered that the hoodlums smashed the car glass window after she refused to open the vehicle door to them.
A source who spoke to Punch said the gunmen whisked the victim away in her wine Honda Crosstour vehicle.
“I called one of my friends that is close to her house and she said the gunmen entered her compound as she was driving in from the shop; they pointed a gun at the security man and asked him to lie down. They knocked on her car window but she didn’t wound down, so they broke her glass, entered the car and took her away,” the source said.
“Her vehicle was later found around the Air Force Road in Port Harcourt; nobody has contacted us for a ransom or anything. We just hope they will return her safely.”
When contacted, spokesperson of the the Rivers State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, promised to find out about the incident.
