Heavily armed robbers in the early hours of yesterday, invaded the Amuwo Odofin, Lagos home of the Deputy Managing Director and Deputy Editor-in-Chief of The Sun Newspapers, Mr. Steve Nwosu and abducted his wife, Toyin.
The robbers reportedly ransacked the entire house and left angrily with Toyin, a mother of four, after they could not find large sums of money in the house.
Narrating his ordeal to Daylight.ng in a brief phone chat, Mr. Nwosu disclosed that the armed robbers gained entry into their home through a nearby transformer, after robbing a house on the same street earlier.
“They came to our house in the early hours of today, Monday, September 14, after robbing another house on our street. They entered through a nearby transformer and started harassing, beating us and shouting that we should bring out the money. I politely told them we don’t have money in the house. They later left with my wife. We have reported the robbery and abduction of my wife to the police,’’ he said.
On whether the abductors had made contacts with the family on phone, the top journalist and respected columnist said, “No; we are still waiting for their call.”
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday expressesed shock over the abduction of Mrs. Nwosu.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh said the party was deeply saddened by the news of the abduction of Mrs. Toyin Nwosu, decrying it as a devilish and barbaric act.
The PDP said it was deeply worried by the recent spate of abductions in the country, adding that the perpetrators cannot justify their actions under any guise whatsoever.
The party said its thoughts and prayers go for the safe return of Mrs. Nwosu and other victims of this social vice. It also expressed confidence that the security forces would track down the abductors and expose those behind the crime.
