Asaba—A National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, member serving in Delta State, Mr. Uchenna Abueme, who was abducted last Saturday in Asaba and taken to a hideout in a neighbouring town, Okpanam, has been found, after spending 28 hours in the bush.
Delta State Police Command’s spokesman, Mr. Charles Muka, told Vanguard, yesterday, that the corps member “has been found in good health.”
He was reported to have been kidnapped on Saturday at 7.30am by three armed men along with one Chinonso Chris, while driving in a Camry car on Ekeobi Nwandu Street, Asaba.
The kidnappers, according to Muka abandoned their victims, when they found that police were after them, which eventually led their victims escaping into the bush.
