Gunmen abduct Enugu businessman, spares wife

There was tension in Eha-Amufu in Isi-Uzo Local Government Area of Enugu State on Monday as suspected Fulani herdsmen reportedly kidnapped a businessman in the area.

It was gathered that the incident was the fourth kidnap incident in three weeks that had occurred in the area.

A Catholic priest serving at Holy Cross Parish, Eha-Amufu was first to be kidnapped on the first week of August. Barely a week after he was released, a Catholic Reverend Sister, a lawyer and two businessmen were also kidnapped.

Community source told our correspondent that the latest incident happened on Sunday at around 6.30pm at Umuhu Eha-Amufu along Nkalagu-Ikem – Ubollo-Afor Road.

The source said, “The man who was coming to Eha-Amufu in company with his wife, was attacked and kidnapped by the gun wielding herdsmen at the old Umuhu Community Secondary School sight.

“They left his wife and his car and took the man into the bush. The police in Ikem came to the scene of the kidnap incident on Monday and took the man’s vehicle to their station.”

Efforts to get the police reaction were unsuccessful as the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Daniel Ndukwe, didn’t answer his calls.
