The Nigeria Association of Women Journalists has called for the immediate release of its member and Manager News, Nigeria Television Authority, Mrs. Chinyere Okoye, kidnapped in Aba, Abia State.

Okoye was kidnapped in Aba on Wednesday night on her way back from work by gunmen, who also took her car away. 

By press time, it could not be confirmed if her abductors have contacted her family. 

The Acting Vice President South East Zone, Comrade Ngozi Mbah, made the call in a statement issued in Enugu on Friday.

Mba appealed for prayers to turn the hearts of the abductors.

She called on security agents to up their game and ensure her immediate rescue and return to her young and grieving family.

The association, however, decried the recent spate of kidnapping of journalists and urged the state government to improve on security operations to ensure the safety of those rendering selfless services in the state.

“We pray that such incidence will no longer be reported again in the zone and Nigeria at large,” NAWOJ said.

South East NAWOJ also condemned in totality the incessant cases of rape and abuse of women reported  in recent times and called on relevant authorities and religious organizations to help stem the tide.
