SECURITY outfits operating in Bayelsa State have been on their toes following Sunday’s abduction of the 70-year-old Inengite Nitabai, the cousin of President Goodluck Jonathan.
Forty eight hours after 10 heavily armed men stormed the expansive compound of Nitabai at Otuoke, hometown of President Jonathan in Ogbia Local Government Area and whisked the old man said to be the president’s cousin away, security agencies had been ordered to find Nitabai.
It was gathered that gunboats of the JTF and the police had been deployed to the creeks of Ogbia and Nembe.
The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hilary Opara, said the security agencies were making frantic efforts to find the victim.
Opara was said to have been personally patrolling Otuoke since the incident occurred. He was sighted driving in and out of Otuoke in an Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC).
He said the police personnel were also searching for some suspects who ran away immediately they sighted the police.
It was learnt that the police had so far patrolled Edebiri, Kiambiri, Anyama and Ogobiri creeks.
