A prominent business woman and owner of De Clemency Nigeria Limited, Mrs. Chinasa Ngokere was abducted on her way to church Thursday by yet to be identified gunmen in Eket Local Government Area of the State.

Chinasa, who owns a water treatment and packaging plant in Eket was taken by six gunmen who also wounded her husband, Mr. Clement Ngokere, during her abduction.
