A businesswoman, Christiana Bernard, has been kidnapped by suspected hoodlums around NTA area of Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

It was gathered that Bernard was about to drive into her compound on Wednesday when she was rounded up by the gunmen and whisked away.

Our correspondent learnt that the gang smashed the car glass window after she refused to open the car door to them.

A source said the hoodlums took the victim away in her wine color Honda Crosstour vehicle.

He said, “I called one of my friends that is close to her house and she said the gunmen entered her compound as she was driving in from the shop; they pointed a gun at the security man and asked him to lie down. They knocked on her car window but she didn’t wind down, so they broke her glass, entered the car and took her away.

“Her vehicle was later found around the Air Force Road in Port Harcourt; nobody has contacted us for a ransom or anything. We just hope they will return her safely.”

The Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, promised to find out about the incident and get back to our correspondent. He has however  not done so as at the time of filing this report.
