Four Chinese nationals were abducted while a   Police officer was killed by hoodlums in Cross Rivers State.
The foreigners who were taken away included: Kan Jinxi, Hujinchang, Jiang Jijun, and Cheng Qing, while the officer, Sgt. Ifere Sampson, a guard attached to them, lost his life in a gun duel.

This is coming barely two months after the government had declared war against kidnapping and cultism by destroying some houses belonging to alleged cutl kingpins.

But after the declaration of war against hoodlums,  Mrs. Ekwele Agube,  wife of Justice Ignatius Agube of the Appeal Court, was kidnapped from her shop at Ekorinim in Calabar Municipality on July 2, and was released after millions of naira was paid as ransom.
Her Personal Assistant(PA)  Glory Akpama, who was with her at the time of the ugly incident, was shot dead.

The  Chinese nationals were kidnapped at their granite construction site located at the Oban community in Akampka Local Government Area about 7:00 pm Wednesday.
