Police arrests seven suspected kidnappers, rescue abducted Onitsha bizman

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers for ransom have abducted an Onitsha-based businessman simply identified as Abu Okafor.
Although a police source confirmed, yesterday, that the victim had been rescued by men of Anambra State Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, within 24 hours of the abduction, the incident occurred at about 8.00 p.m. along Enugu Road, GRA, Onitsha when the four-man kidnap syndicate struck as he came out from a drinking parlour to ease himself.
According to the source, the victim was the owner of a filling station at ‘33’ area of Onitsha suburb.. It was gathered that the gunmen might have trailed him to the bar, abducted him and speed off. Meanwhile, the vehicle that was used to take him away was said to have been seen at a compound in ’33’ and a joint team of police and soldiers stormed the compound, recovered the vehicle and arrested seven suspects without the victim at the first attempt. But on a second rescue operation carried out by SARS, the victim was reportedly rescued, even as there was not clue as to whether his relations paid ransom.
The Police Area Commander for Onitsha, Ezekiel Philip, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, who confirmed the incident, on phone yesterday, told newsmen to contact the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in charge of Central Police Station, CPS, Onitsha, Mr. Isa Abubakar, for details.
When contacted, Isa also told newsmen that the victim had been rescued, adding that the suspects had been transferred to SARS headquarters, Awkuzu.
