Nine persons comprising six women, two men and a baby, were allegedly kidnapped along Okpokwu Agamede in Eha-Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government Area of Enugu State on Monday evening.

The abductees were riding in a commercial tricycle otherwise known as ‘keke NAPEP’ when their captors accosted them and took them to an unknown destination.

Vanguard reported that two men and the nursing mother with baby were released by the kidnappers who held on to the remaining five women in their custody.

The Parish Priest of the St Mary’s Catholic Church, Odenigbo Eha-Amufu, Rev Fr Emma Nnadi, who broke the news to a WhatsApp group of reverend fathers and monsignors yesterday morning wrote;

“Good morning dear Msgr/Frs.

“Yesterday evening, kidnappers stormed one of my outstations, Okpokwu, and kidnapped 8 persons, (2 men, 6 women and a baby). They later freed the men and a woman with her baby. With them now are 4 of my CWO members of the outstation including their chairlady.

"For now, nothing has been heard about them.

“Keep them and all of us in your prayers, pls.”

Other sources confirmed that the incident had enveloped the whole community in fear.

This is even as Rev Fr Titus Ogbu, who was returning from the Federal College of Education, Eha-Amufu, where he is doing a diploma programme in Education was equally kidnapped within the pipeline axis along Eha-Amufu Road in the same council area.

When contacted, the spokesperson of Enugu State Police Command, Daniel Ndukwe, denied the incident.

“I don’t have such report,” he said.
