An Nnewi-based businessman, Ernest Otugo, his wife and his friend were abducted on Thursday night.

Mr Otugo is the President of the Ibite Olo Community in Ezeagu Local Government Area.

The Otugos and their children were travelling with a family friend, identified only as Reuben, an indigene of Awka, Anambra State, to Enugu from Nnewi for a social event scheduled for Friday.

They were travelling in a Toyota Venza car when they were accosted by the abductors at Amokwe, Udi local council along old Enugu-Awka Road.

The kidnappers spared the children and took away the couple and Mr Reuben.

However, they later released Mrs Otugo so she could arrange ransom for the freedom of her husband and his friend.

 

Police spokesperson in Enugu, Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the incident.

He said the anti-kidnapping operatives of the police were on the trail of the criminals.
