ASABAâ€”BARELY 12 days after two workers of National Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), Benin City, Edo State, Messrs Danjuma Bashir and Malabu A. Ahmad, were kidnapped and later murdered at Mosogar area of Delta State, another oil worker from Total ENP has been kidnapped and taken to an unknown destination.
The worker, Mr. Anthony Abiagomuwa Nwanze, was said to have been kidnapped Tuesday, 23 March,Â at about 8 pm around Ibusa area of Delta State.
Speaking on this latest kidnap, President of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association, (PENGASSAN), Comrade Babatunde Ogun, called on Delta State government and all security agencies in the state and its environs to do everything possible to secure the release of Mr Nwanze, who he said is a member of PENGASSAN.
According to him, â€œ we do not want what happened to our comrades, Danjuma Bashir and Malabu A. Ahmad, to happen to Comrade Nwanze. We are yet to come to terms with the killing of those two comrades. We are calling on Delta State government and all security agencies in the state and its environs to search and rescue him alive. We are concerned over the increasing threats, attacks, kidnaps and killings of innocent Nigerians, especially workers and oil workers in particular. “
