Gov Umahi confirms arrest of abductors

Ebonyi Governor David Umahi has hailed the arrest of a gang Boss accountable for abductions in the Enyigba area of the state.

some citizens had been recently abducted in the renewed land dispute among Enyigba and Enyibichiri groups.

Commissioner for records, Uchenna Orji, in a statement on Thursday, said the Boss and other members are in police custody.

Orji disclosed that the state government has despatched security operatives to Ebonyi’s boundary with Cameroon to apprehend fleeing suspects.

The authorities will do everything within the law to prosecute the suspects, to check the status of the kidnapped persons,” he stated.

Umahi was quoted as commending the people of Abakaliki and Ikwo councils for coping with the matter with maturity.

The Governor warned miscreants in Izzi to desist from attacks on Ikwo indigenes.

He added that any further assault could be viewed as an act of terrorism and decisively dealt with.
