President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Olumide Akpata, has constituted a task force to secure the release of a 25-year-old lawyer, Abisola Paulette Ajayi, who was abducted on Sunday night.

Akpata, who made the disclosure in a series of tweets on his handle, said he had also spoken to Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, Attorney-General of Rivers State as well as the Police Command in the state to request their assistance for Ajayi’s safe return.

It was gathered that Ajayi, a Masters student of the University of Science and Technology (UST) in Rivers State, was abducted on October 4, 2020 in front of her home in Rumukurushi, Port Harcourt, by men dressed in combat fatigues and dark T-shirts.

Her mother, Ngozi Ajayi, was punched when she attempted to save her daughter.

The task force is headed by NBA 1st Vice-President, John Aikpokpo-Martins.

Its other members are: Kunle Edun (Welfare Secretary); Prince Nyekwere (Chairman NBA PH); Victor Frank-Briggs; Irene Pepple; Anthonia Osademe (Vice-Chairman NBA Port Harcourt) and Ngozi Ajayi.

The NBA urged the public that any useful information on the matter be made available to the NBA Welfare Secretary or the Vice Chairman of the Port Harcourt Branch.
