Two killed as kidnappers attack travellers in Enugu


Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers attacked travellers along the Ugwogo-Neke Road in Enugu State on Friday, and reportedly killed two persons.

The incident occurred at a border between Enugu East and Isi-Uzo local government areas of the State.

The Ugwogo area of Enugu State has been notorious for kidnapping activities, a situation that has made travelling on roads within the area a nightmare.

According to an eyewitness, the latest incident occurred on Friday at about 7:30 pm.

The source hinted that the suspected kidnappers swooped on passersby along the road, shot sporadically at incoming vehicles and killed two persons in a vehicle, went further to another vehicle and kidnapped some persons they commandeered into the bus.

According to the eyewitness, “Chief Cyril Mbah from Neke Odenigbo-Nike was gunned down by suspected kidnappers along Ugwogo/Isi-uzo road, near Neke Odenigbo junction.

“He was rushing home with his daughter in his car when he ran into a group of suspected kidnappers who suddenly opened fire on him.

“Unfortunately, he couldn’t survive the gunshots but nothing happened to his daughter.

“The kidnappers went further, fired and flattened the tires of another vehicle approaching the scene and successfully whisked away the driver and other people on board.

“Till now no one is certain where they are.”

The police in Enugu State are yet to confirm
