The family of the Commissioner for Women Affairs in Cross River State, Prof Gertrude Nnanjar Njar, who was abducted over one month ago have called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to rescue her from captivity.
Prof Gertrude was kidnapped by armed men dressed in military fatigue in the early hours of February 1, 2023, on Atamunu Street in Calabar while on her way to the office in her official Renault car.
According to the petition signed by one Prince Odey Oyama, dated March 2, 2023, the family said that the kidnappers drove a white Hilux and had since demanded a N150m ransom through phone number 09074056593.

The petition reads in part: “It is one month now since her kidnap without any positive results. This has given our entire family, community, friends and well-wishers deep concern.”
They called on the IGP to use his office to assist in tracing the woman.
When the incident happened, the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Eric Anderson, assured that the state government would do everything possible to rescue her.
