By Peter Okutu

ABAKALIKI — Wife of the Coordinator of Okposi Development Centre, Mrs. Anene Magnus Eze, was yesterday, kidnapped by gunmen within Abakaliki metropolis.

The kidnap, which took place around 8p.m., Wednesday, at the residence of the Coordinator at Aguiyi Layout Street, Abakaliki, occurred before neighbours realised the outcome of the whole scenario.
She was taken in one of her neighbour’s cars, an ash coloured Highlander, with Lagos Registration AKD 836 CQ.
The kidnappers came to the residence of the coordinator when they knew he was not at home.

At the time of filing this report, the incident was yet to be reported to the police in Abakaliki for investigation.
But a police source disclosed that “as soon as the matter is reported, the police and other security operatives will swing into action.”
