A seasoned broadcaster, working with the Cross River State Broadcasting Corporation (CRBC) Radio/TV services, Mr Peter Etim aka ‘godfather’ who was abducted over three months ago is yet to regain his freedom.

Mr Etim was kidnapped in the early hours of Friday in the month of February while going to work at the station IBB in Calabar, Cross River State capital. The victim was abducted in front of his house by unknown gunmen before 6am.

A staff of the station who pleaded for anonymity said “He was the one on morning duty the day he was kidnapped. Suspected kidnappers captured him while he drove out of his house in Calabar South local government area of Cross River State.

Speaking with DAILY POST on Thursday, the General Manager (GM) of Sparkling FM, Mr Effiong Nyong lamented the situation and said, “I am yet to ascertain that he is dead. I wish he is alive, over 3 Months in the kidnapper’s dane, no serious talk about him, no serious talk regarding his sudden disappearance.

“I fear for this society, I fear for us all, I fear for the children that are coming up. ‘It is sad, it is unfortunate, it’s condemnable, it is shocking, that could happen before our eyes and we are all watching very helplessly.

“I expect his family to raise their voices, I expect the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) to raise their voices, I expect RATAWU to raise their voices, I expect where he works, CRBC to raise their voices, unfortunately, I have not heard anything at all, it’s sad”.
