 Fear has gripped residents of Nsukka, Enugu state, the host community of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), following the abduction of a lawyer, Eze Iwu and his kinsman, Vincent Okonkwo Ogadimma by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.

The victims were kidnapped at about 8pm, Saturday while they were returning from a meeting. Families of the victims were yet to be contacted by their abductors as at press time on Tuesday.

Ebere Amaraizu, spokesman for Enugu state police command who confirmed the incident said police have intensified efforts to release the victims.

Amaraizu said they were about driving into the compound of Vincent Okonkwo Ogadinma at Omuma Close Ugwu Achara Nsukka when the gunmen blocked them with a Toyota Sienna car with no registration number.

Amaraizu described the incident as very unfortunate but said the police were on top of the situation and were not resting on their oars to ensure that the victims were released unhurt.

He said all hands were on deck and the police have commenced full scale investigation into the alleged incident.
