Gunmen Kidnap Marshal Harry’s Daughter

UNKNOWN gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted Miss Julie Harry, the daughter of the former Vice-Chairman of the All Nigeria Peoples Party, late Marshal Harry.

CaptureThe eldest son of the late politician, Mr. Sonny Harry, who disclosed this to SUNDAY PUNCH on Friday, said his sister was seized by hoodlums on December 1, 2013, about 100 metres away from her residence in Eleparanwo, Rivers State.

He said his sister’s Honda CRV jeep, taken away by the kidnappers, was recovered the following day at Rumumasi in Port Harcourt.

Harry, who was visibly worried about the whereabouts of 30-year-old Miss Julie, stated that he had yet to establish contact with the kidnappers of his sister, five days after her abduction.

“I reported the matter to the police, the State Security Service, other relevant security agents and they all said they had begun investigations. We do not see the kidnap of our sister as politically motivated.

“Her kidnap is one of the indications of the increasing level of insecurity in the state. When she was kidnapped, we decided to wait with the hope that she would soon be released.

“But as I speak with you, she has not regained her freedom and we have yet to establish contact with those who kidnapped her.

“Since her abduction, no contact has been made with her family and no ransom has been demanded. The family has also reported this incident to the security agencies,” the senior Harry added.

He, appealed to Julie’s captors to release her and save the family more psychological trauma after the gruesome murder of their father.

Confirming the incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ahmad Mohammad, said security agents had since swung into action to ensure the rescue of the kidnap victim.

He stated out that the police would leave no stone unturned in its bid to rescue the victim.
