Kidnappers weekend, invaded Onitsha Enugu-Ezike in Igboeze North Local Government of Enugu State and abducted the Catholic Parish Priest in the community, Rev. Father Amoke, killing a police man in the process, just as another Police Constable, David Ntiebo, 30, was allegedly killed in error by his colleague at Emene, near Enugu metropolis.

The deceased policeman was said to have tried to ‘’intercept’’ the hoodlums who headed towards Obollo Afor in Udenu Local Government after abducting Rev. Fr. Amoke when he was shot dead at Uda, a near-by village to Obollo Afor.

The state Police Commissioner, Jobi Doma confirmed the kidnap of the priest at Enugu Ezike as well as the killing of another Constable Ntiedo, attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS ‘’allegedly by his colleague’’ during the week saying no arrests have been made just as the ‘’kidnappers have not made any demands yet.’’

He said that the SARS operative was mistakenly gunned down by one of his colleagues during a crossfire with men of the underworld at Emene area of Enugu adding that he later died at the hospital.

Doma however, said that the incident was being investigated while ‘’the police man who shot him is now being interrogated at the Criminal Investigation Department, CID, of the state Police Command.
