The police in Enugu State, on Tuesday freed two students of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT, from kidnappers’ den.



The students, Alexander Afamefuna Akadieze of Amankwo Oghe, a third year student of department of political science and Miracle Chukwuemeka, a second year student of department of sociology, regained their freedom after one week.

DailyPost gathered that the victims were abducted on February 17, around 7 pm from their hostel, located opposite the school gate, as they came down from upstairs room to buy water.

The source further disclosed that hoodlums numbering about four pointed a gun at the victims and ordered them to get into a standby taxi cab, from where they were taken to an unknown destination.

According to the victims, the suspected kidnappers also demanded for their parents’ name and telephone numbers, with which they started calling them, demanding for the sum of twenty million naira.

It was gathered that they later reduced the ransom to ten thousand naira, with a threat that if the police were involved, they would will kill the victims.

The police spokesman in Enugu State, Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the incident to DailyPost stated that “the case was reported to the state command and the commissioner of police Adamu Mohammed Abubakar directed the anti-kidnapping outfit to swing into action and to that extent, operation was carried out through information garnered from relevant quarters leading to the arrest of one of the gang members identified as Ngeneoke Chinugo of Ituku village in Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State”.

He added that the suspect, “a commercial motorcyclist at Ituku disclosed how he conveyed one of the fleeing hoodlums with pure water and food-flask to the forest near Ufam stream in Ituku where victims are held hostage.

“Victims were, however, rescued after intensive confrontation inside the den as hoodlums escaped with various degree of injuries just as manhunt on them are intensified.

“At the den after the encounter, a berreta pistol with some ammunition belonging to the hoodlums was also recovered”.

“Ngeneoke is pleading for forgiveness, although he maintained that one of the hoodlums is a family member recently discharged from the prison custody owing to his involvement in criminality”, Amaraizu added.
