The Bonny Gentlemen’s League (The League) has expressed serious worries over the Kidnap in Bonny Island, of 2 prominent sons of Bonny Kingdom, by yet to be identified gunmen, on Sunday the 11th July 2021.
The frontline socio-cultural organisation in Rivers State with headquarters in Bonny LGA, expressed these worries as it rose from its emergency General meeting held on 12th July, 2021.
Speaking to the Press after the meeting, the Chancellor of The League, Amaopusenibo (Squadron Leader) Olam Allwell-Brown (Rtd), gave the names of those kidnapped as Amaopusenibo Dennis Ezekiel-Hart and Senibo Maclean Akwe.
According to him, this incident had refreshed the bitter experiences of the kidnap of 5 other Bonny illustrious Sons on 12th September 2020, who are still in captivity till date, despite repeated calls on relevant authorities and Agencies to ensure their release.
The League therefore, in very strong terms, calls on Government and Security Agencies at all levels to deploy all platforms at their disposal to quickly secure the release of all the 7 Sons of Bonny Kingdom now in the hands of Kidnappers. The League vows not to rest on its oars until these Bonny elites are re-united with their families.
The League further calls on Security Agencies to live up to their responsibilities in providing a holistic security for Bonny Kingdom and residents, on Bonny Island, her satellite communities and the waterways.
