LAGOS—Senator Annie Okonkwo, has described the kidnap of Prof.  Mabel Kamene Okonjo, the 83-years-old mother of the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala by unknown gunmen in broad day light at her residence in Ogwashi Uku, as a frightening dimension to the bold criminality festering the  Nigerian Nation.

Okonkwo, president of C21, stated that this is one banditry that must not be allowed to stand, not just because she is the mother of a high ranking public officer, but for the huge psychological dismay to the ordinary man, evident in the damaging affront to the  capacity of our security agencies to assuage our daily traumas.

He said: “We have had daily robberies on our roads including the ‘One Million’ robbers in Lagos, we have had escalating suicide terrorists and we appear to have adjusted to routine kidnappings that have left everyone to their own personal devices. What we must not allow is this audacious strike at the realm of authority, from where flows the stabilising essence of hope and confidence in the minimum order of government.”
