The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Cross River State has disclosed that the abductors of two of its members have demanded N100 million ransom.

Dr Felix Archibong, Chairman of NMA in the state, said the two doctors, alongside two others, were abducted on Friday at the Ikomita section of the Calabar-Ikom highway.

The state’s Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr Sule Balarabe, who confirmed the incident, said, “We are going to comb the forests to secure their release. I assure that the matter will adequately be dealt with. I am not just sitting in Calabar to give orders, I am also on ground with my men.

“We have the cooperation of the locals and I believe we will have positive results. I am on ground with various units.

“We are hitting the nail on the head as I speak. We will make sure we secure the release of the victims unharmed.” (NAN)
