It was gathered that Dr and Mrs Ughamadu, Mr and Mrs Kent Nosier and Meschack Iwekaogwu were allegedly whisked away to unknown place by the kidnappers.

Community source said the hoodlums usually surfaced from their bush hideout, brandishing their weapons and forcing their victims out of their vehicles.
