BOKO HARAM THREAT: Police assure of adequate security in Ondo

In what played out like a scene from an action movie, a businessman who resides in the Amaraku community area of Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State was whisked away by three men suspected to be kidnappers.

The abduction of the man identified as Odinaka Uzoeshi was confirmed by the the Commander, Imo security Network for Okigwe Zone, Uzondu Kaka who revealed that the kidnappers operated in a way which made it hard for residents to detect their criminal mission.

Kaka noted that upon kidnapping their victim, the suspects who came in a motorcycle later whisked away Uzoeshi in a car while shooting sporadically into the air, scaring away neighbours.
