Again, kidnappers strike in Enugu, abduct hospital boss

By  Tony Edike, Enugu

Barely three days after the Vice Chancellor of Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT, Enugu, Professor Cyprian Onyeji, was abducted, kidnappers struck again on Friday, abducting the Administrative Director of Niger Foundation Hospital, Enugu, Mazi Jonah Ndubuisi Abah.

Abah was abducted while on his way to the morning mass and his whereabouts were not known.  A Spanish doctor working at the same hospital, Dr. Joe Machimbarrena, had been abducted early  this year.

Vanguard learnt that Abah was with his wife and children in his car when he was accosted by gun men numbering about four. He was ordered out of the car and taken away by the men to an unknown place while the wife and children watched helplessly.

No contact has been established with the kidnappers as the victim was not with his phone when the incident occurred.
Operatives of the Police Anti Kidnap Squad in Enugu were said to have swung into action to ensure the release of the doctor.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the development, said the police were after the kidnappers.
