Describing the abduction as “professional” is an affront to all hardworking decent professional in various fields, says An Observer.

I refer to the recent unsolved abduction of a well-known pastor in broad daylight by a group of people carrying out what has been described as a “professional” job.
We should stop describing this abduction as “professional”; there is nothing professional in a group of people kidnapping an unarmed unprotected civilian.

The more appropriate words that comes to mind are thuggery, cowardice, lawlessness, criminals who are obviously not God-fearing.
