Two Chinese, who were supervising government projects at Uburu community, in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen

The gunmen abducted the victims, whose names were yet to be identified at the time of filing this report and whisked them away to an unknown destination.

Investigation revealed that the kidnappers invaded the scene where the expatriates were supervising government projects along with an in-law to the governor, Chief David Umahi.

It was gathered that the kidnappers were shooting sporadically to scare people away, in order to capture their victims.

But, the governor’s in-law quickly alerted the police, who responded swiftly and

followed him to pursue the kidnappers but it was unfortunate that the kidnappers overpowered them.

A source, who spoke to a Media Source on the condition of anonymity, said the bullets from the gunmen damaged the governor’s in-law’s car but they didn’t sustain any serious injury.

When contacted for confirmation, the Police Public relations officer, Ebonyi police command, DSP, Loveth Odah said she was not too sure of the kidnap incident.

She, however, assured of the preparedness of the command to get into the remote cause of such incident in the area.

“Maybe you can call me back because what I would tell you is in this phone. You can call back, so that I can extract the information and tell you,” she stated.
