Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala And Her Mum In The Background

A statement released Sunday night by the Special Assistant to the Minister, Mr. Paul Nwabuikwu, titled “Abduction Of Prof Mrs Okonjo” reads:

“Earlier today, Professor (Mrs) Kamene Okonjo, wife of Professor Chukuka Okonjo, the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku and mother of the Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala was abducted from her home in Ogwashi-Uku, Delta State.”

“At this point, it is difficult to say whether those behind this action are the same people who have made threats against the Coordinating Minister in the recent past or other elements with hostile motives.”

“No possibility can be ruled out at this point.”

“This is obviously a very difficult time for the entire Okonjo. But the family is hopeful of a positive outcome as it fervently prays for the quick and safe return of the matriarch,” the statement concludes.
