Abducted Imo Wedding Guests Regain Freedom A Fortnight After


Two out of the three persons who were kidnapped after leaving the venue of a wedding ceremony in Imo State have been released from captivity.

Their captors let them off the hook exactly two weeks after seizing and ferrying them to an unknown destination.

The victims are Collins Alaefula, Mmadu Promise and Victor Chibuike.

Our correspondent learnt that the two released victims paid ransoms before they were let off the hook by their kidnappers.

Brother to one of the victims, Fortune, told our correspondent on Saturday that his sibling, Promise and one other were released on Friday night by their abductors.

An elated Fortune said ” Yes, my brother and one other had been released. They were released on Friday night. It was actually a case of kidnap not missing persons.

“I don’t know the name of the other person who was released alongside my brother. I have not seen them but I am on my way to see them.”

The victims who rode in a Lexus 330 grey coloured vehicle were declared missing on August 28 after they left a wedding ceremony in Isiala Mbano Local Government Area to Owerri, their base.

After their whereabouts were not ascertained, their families declared them missing and reported the case of missing persons at a Police station in Owerri.

Their kidnappers were said to have contacted their families few days after and demanded an undisclosed amount of money as condition for their release.

Our correspondent could not ascertain the reason the third person was not freed.

The police spokesperson, CSP Michael Abattam, was yet to respond to enquiries concerning the development as at the time of filing this report.
