Senator Emma Nwaka has expressed “utter dismay and anguish” over the abduction of yet-to-be-determined number of students of Abia State University, Uturu (ABSU), alongside other innocent wayfarers at Okigwe, Imo State, in the evening of Wednesday, May 5, 2021.

Nwaka in a statement issued on Friday morning commended “the collaborative efforts of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and his colleagues in the neighbouring states to track down these purveyors of extreme wickedness in order to rescue their hapless victims.”

He further called on “our security agencies to deploy aerial facilities as a matter of utmost urgency to augment the ground rescue efforts just as they did in Orlu, Imo State, in search of members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN).”

The frontline lawyer and politician said that the call on the security agencies was “against the backdrop of the information making the rounds that these bandits use walkie talkies nowadays as opposed to mobile phones, thereby rendering ineffectual the existing tracking devices.”

He went ahead to urge the Federal Government to empower the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy to upgrade the country’s tracking ability so as to put us ahead of the evil devices of these enemies of progress.
