Oil Worker’s Children Abducted in Nigeria

Wednesday, October 24, 2007
Two children, Fransisca Ehileme, age six, and her five-year-old brother, Francis, both children of an oil worker, were abducted by gunmen on their way to school around Rumuigbo junction in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital. Security sources informed the Nigerian Tribune in Port Harcourt that the father of the children, Mr. Maximus Ehileme, a production superintendent with Elf Petroleum, was taking them to school in his car at about 6:50 a.m. when the armed hoodlums blocked his car near Obi Wali Road junction by Rumu-Echieolu Street. A source from the State Security Service (SSS) told the Nigerian Tribune that no contact had been established with the kidnappers yet, but added that the SSS had already taken up the case and would be handling the negotiations for their release. He added that the SSS had been on their trail since the case was reported. [Source: http://www.tribune.com.ng]
