Mrs. Chioma Madubuko, the wife of Dr. Christian Madubuko, the missing Trade and Commerce Commissioner Who recently resigned in the State of Anambra, cried out about her husband’s condition from her base in Australia.
On Wednesday, she spoke on the phone with Ejes Gist Nigeria, regretting that her children were in pain because of their missing father.
Mrs. Madubuko requested the rescue of her husband from President Muhammadu Buhari, Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu and Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano.
On January 13, two weeks after he resigned from Obiano’s government, Dr. Madubuko was abducted. He had urged the governor to have his administration under control.
His relatives protested on Tuesday at Anaku in Ayamelum Local Government, pleading with the government to help secure their son’s release.
Narrating her ordeal, Mrs. Madubuko said she went through the trauma of the incident with her three kids.
“She said: “It started on the 13th of January when I was called by my husband and we spoke at length as usual. He told me that he was going to meet with some government officials and that later he would call me.
“I called him when he didn’t call, and he didn’t pick him up. My thought was that later, he’d call. I decided to call again after waiting a long time, but his two lines were switched off. I waited, to no avail, for him to call.
I was worried and I had to call the people at home who told me that he was going to Awka. I opened up the social media on the night of January 15 and saw the news that Dr. Madubuko had been abducted.
“It shocked me. I began calling people from the government, but they told me that there was no cause for alarm, and I relaxed.
“The situation has not been the same since then. Things don’t work well. My kids called their dad’s lines, and I don’t know what to say to them again.
The worst part of this is that our daughter’s dad was planning a party day. I lied to them about the whereabouts of their father.
I’m pleading with our President, our Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, our Inspector-General of Police, to help us locate and release my husband. The pain for me and the kids is becoming too much.
As a national embarrassment, the President of the Nigeria Association in Australia, Uche Okorie, a lawyer, described the situation.
He said everyone ought to be involved in securing the freedom of Madubuko.
Okorie defined the former commissioner as the pride of Australia’s Nigerians and Igbo in particular, noting that security agencies and the government should ensure that Madubuko returned hale and hearty.
He said their concern was not only that Madubuko had been kidnapped, but that the person who meritoriously served his people was “going through this form of torture.”
Dr. Uche Menakaya, leader of Ndigbo in Australia, said it was the first time people living in the country had a government appointment, which they were celebrating and asking why?
“We urge them to give him back to us, his family in the state of Anambra, his wife and three children aged 13, 9 and 7,” he added.
