Update On The Kidnap of Akas Baba of Wazobia FM

The WAZOBIA family is pleading with all Nigerians and any one with information that could aid the release of AKAS BABA to contact the nearest police station, or call: 08099930069 or send a text to 32355.

The management of Steam & Globe Broadcasting and Communications Ltd, owners of Cool FM, Wazobia FM and Nigeria Info, condemns the kidnap of their staff, a on-air personality on Wazobia FM Port Harcourt, Anthony Akatakpo, famously called AKAS BABA. The broadcaster’s home was attacked in the early hours of Thursday March 13, 2014.

AKAS BABA was beaten and shot in the leg by the kidnappers in the presence of his wife and kids, despite cooperating with his attackers. He was whisked away in his Mitsubishi Endeavor SUV with Registration No.:LSD 871 CM. This very violent act still leaves AKAS BABA’S family in great trauma.

The kidnappers made a ransom demand of N10, 000,000 (Ten Million Naira) before fleeing with him.

The family and management of Wazobia FM have reported the kidnap to the police as well as other security agencies. We are optimistic that the police alongside other security agencies will do a thorough job of securing the release of AKAS BABA. We hereby urge security operatives in the state to do everything possible to quicken the release of the ace broadcaster from the kidnappers’ den. We are worried that his health might degenerate if he does not get access to medical care as a result of the gunshot wound he sustained.

We once again plead with the people holding Akas Baba to release him immediately so he can return to his family and we can all put this sad experience behind us.

AKAS BABA is the host of “Make Una Wake Up” the breakfast show on Wazobia FM Port Harcourt The show which airs weekdays from 5am to 10am, is one of the most popular radio shows in the South-South region of the Nigeria.
