Gunmen abduct Enugu commissioner’s sister-in-law, child

The wife and child of Mr Eugene Edeoga, a younger brother to the Enugu State commissioner for Environment, Honourable Chijioke Edeoga have been reportedly kidnapped by gunmen on Saturday night, 1 January 2022.

According to reports, they were kidnapped inside their house at Eke Market in Eha-Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government Area (LGA), of the state.

Chief Godswill Ndukwe, a community leader confirmed the incident to Punch, saying that the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has begun a search for the victims.

Ndukwe noted he received report of their abduction about 8:00 pm, saying; “Eha-Amufu is currently in turmoil since the information of the abduction filtered into the air on Saturday evening. The disturbing part of this abduction is that they were abducted inside their house.

“This was the second scenario where kidnappers would be entering their victims’ house to abduct them. The first was the kidnap of the eight-year-old daughter of the chairman of Agu-Amede community, Mr Sunday, a.k.a Sharia, in November last year.

“Unfortunately, since this festive period, no fewer than ten persons had been abducted before this incident. They (kidnappers) started with the kidnap of a Catholic priest in Ebo Community. A few days later, three people in tricycle were abducted and last week five others were abducted along Eha-Amufu -Ikem Road.”

The Enugu State Police Command was yet to comment on the incident as of press time.

Their kidnap is coming barely seven days after five persons were abducted along the Eha-Amufu-Agu-Amede-Ikem-Ubolo-Afor Road.
