The public outcry that trailed the news of missing father of Chelsea of England star, John Mikel Obi, after the inability of Nigeria police to find the old man more than a week after the incident happened, is giving the Plateau State Police Command sleepless nights.
Public Relations Officer of the Command, Apev Jacob, said the inability of the police to find Mike Obi, is giving the Commissioner of Police sleepless nights.
Jacob, who spoke on a television programme monitored in Lagos at the weekend, said the rank and file of the police in the state will leave nothing to chance to ensure that the father of the Super Eaglesâ€™ mid fielder is found at the least possible time.
The PPRO, who said that there is no clue yet on the identity of the kidnappers of Mikelâ€™s dad, disclosed that all the officers of the Command are not resting on their oars to save the nation from the embarrassment.
â€œThe CP is having sleepless nights since the father of Mikel Obi was declared missing by the family. He is not resting on his oars. We are doing everything possible to capture the kidnappers although there is no clue yet. I want to say that weâ€™re on our guard to ensure that we find the old man sooner than expected,â€ he stated.
He, however, urged Nigerians not to hesitate to give the police any information that will help nab the kidnappers, adding that the police would treat the information with outmost confidentiality.
The Force Deputy Public Relations Officer, Yemi Ajayi, who spoke on Brila F.M. early today, also assured Nigerians that the abductors of Mikelâ€™s dad will soon be tracked down and that all logistics of the Police have been deployed to find them.
Ajayi said the Police are on top of the situation, adding, “we are not relenting in our effort to nab the abductors. Plateau State Commissioner of Police and men of the command are putting in their best to ensure the freedom of Pa Mike Obi. We have done all the necessary things needed to be done and very soon, the abductors will be tracked down.”
Pa Mike Obi was kidnapped on 12 August in Jos, Plateau State, North Central, Nigeria.
