The International Press Centre (IPC), Lagos-Nigeria is deeply concerned about the fate of Donu Kogbara, the Vanguard newspaper columnist who was kidnapped on August 30, 2015 in Port Harcourt, south-south Nigeria and has since been held incommunicado.
It is particularly worrisome that her abductors have not maintained any contact with her relations and friends thus fuelling all forms of suspicions.
IPC considers her kidnap as another assault on the freedom of the press and the right of media professionals to practise without fear, threats and molestation. She should be set free immediately.
IPC urges the Inspector General of Police to step into the matter and with the support of other law enforcement and intelligence agencies ensure that nothing untoward happens to Donu Kogbara.
