The new Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Chinaka Chioma Maureen made this known to DAILY POST during a telephone interaction on the matter.
According to the PPRO, men of the Command were doing everything possible to rescue the Chinese who was a site Manager at a Quarry site at Lokpanta.
She noted that the combined security team, involving the police and other security agencies had extended the search for the missing Manager to as far as Ebonyi and Enugu States, adding that scientific equipment like drones had already been deployed to achieve the desired results.
The PPRO stated that earlier reports indicated that the expatriate did not go with his security details on the day he was declared missing, but promised that investigations were still ongoing to unravel the details about his disappearance.
