“We are really concerned that the security agencies have not yet managed to rescue our member, who is a mother and an older woman over the age of 60. How stressful and heartbreaking it must have been for Prof. Ekanem, I can only imagine.

This is the reason we are peacefully entering the House of Assembly’s grounds to attract attention to the situation and make an appeal on behalf of her friends and family to the government and security services to assist in her rescue.

A few days ago, Jonathan Towuru, the Assistant Inspector General of Police for Zone Six, issued the state commissioner of police orders to use every tool at his disposal to secure the quick release of the doctor.
