The victims were being conveyed in a Toyota Hiace bus in the early hours of Saturday, 7th March.

Confirming the report Enugu Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, ASP Daniel Ndukwe noted that the Commissioner of Police Ahmad Abdurrahman, following intelligence report , detailed a team of Police Operatives of the “Puff Adder” Operation of the Command, who traced the gang of kidnappers conveying 13 kidnap victims in a Toyota Hiace bus with Reg.

When the kidnappers sighting the Operatives along Enugu-Markurdi highway, they diverted and disappeared into Akomagbo Ugbaike Community in Igbo-Eze North LGA of Enugu State.

The hoodlums were later traced to their hideout in the house of one Chidi Ogbonna (also known as “Egbe) in the said Akomagbo Ugbaike Community where they were holding the victims hostage.

On sighting the Operatives, the Kidnappers took to their heels, while the Team succeeded in arresting a female member of the gang, one Onyeke Gloria Nwanezi, rescued the 13 victims and recovered one locally made pistol with 2 live cartridges, one metal toy pistol, 1 Toyota Hiave Bus with Reg No. MSA 657 XA and 2 two Motorcycles.
