Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, yesterday, visited the Umuogbua Ihe tunnel along Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway by Awgu Local Government Area, which alleged serves as a hide-out and escape route for kidnappers operating in the area. 

He also visited the Ihe-Agbogugu-Ogbaku-Amurri and Isu-Awaa-Agbudu forests in the same local government area, and ordered the immediate demolition of Agbogugu and Isu-Awaa-Agbudu caves to enhance the security of the areas.  

The governor equally inspected the ongoing construction of a military base along Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway by Umuogbua Ihe, Awgu LGA and further directed that the bushes around the tunnel/kidnappers’ den should be cleared immediately.
