Two arrested for abduction in Enugu


The Enugu State Police Command has arrested two members of a vigilance group in Nimbo, Uzo Uwani local government area of the state, for alleged kidnap of one Enechi Ejiofor in December last year.

The command’s spokesperson, Ebere Amaraizu, disclosed this to journalists in Enugu on Thursday.

Amaraizu said the suspects abducted Ejiofor, a Special Assistant on Security Matters to Uzo Uwani local government area chairman, in December on his way to an official assignment at Ugwuiyi Ekoro.

He said the kidnappers on December 14, 2016 demanded N10 million ransom from the family but later reduced it to N2 million which one of the suspects collected.

Amaraizu said the two suspects were helping policemen in their investigations.

He said the first suspects revealed that they allegedly collaborated with the community vigilance group to kidnap the victim.

The police spokesman said the first suspect, who claimed to be a Nollywood actor, said he played a big role in monitoring the victim’s movement because he knows him very well.
