October 1st, 2016 – DSS DG Calls CBN Governor’s Wife Margaret Emefiele’s Abduction An Embarrassment
CBN governor’s wife was abducted alongside three women and a male driver on Thursday on their way to Agbor, Delta State, where she hails from.
Security experts described the abduction of high profile lady, Margaret Emefiele as an embarrassment, noting that something must have gone wrong.
A former director, Department of State Services, Mike Ejiofor, stated that as a politically exposed person, Margaret must have had security operatives attached to her.
He wondered where the personnel were at the time she was abducted, noting that until the details of the incident came to light, it might be hard to know what transpired.
The lawyer urged Nigerians to take their personal security seriously.
Ejiofor said, “I don’t know the circumstances around her abduction, but this is one of the highest profile kidnap cases in recent time.
“How can the wife of the CBN Governor, with all these security challenges be kidnapped? We need the details. Was any security operative attached to her?
“As the wife of the CBN governor, I expect she would need some protection. Until I get the details, I can’t talk much, but I believe something has gone wrong, which is very embarrassing.”
Another security analyst, Ben Okezie, also observed that something must have gone wrong with the security operative(s) around Margaret.
He expressed confidence that the kidnap victim would be rescued and prayed for her safety.
“We pray they did not do anything evil to her. This should signal top people that their security should be guaranteed because they are important to Nigeria,” Okezie said.
