After months of reprieve, kidnappers are getting back to their old game in Anambra State, South-East Nigeria. They went on rampage over the weekend, killing one person, abducting one and injuring another.

News Express gathered that the five-man kidnap gang stormed Nkwelle Umunachi community in Idemili Local Government Area at about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday in an L300 Mitsubishi bus. However, after abducting their victim, their vehicle failed to start.

On sighting an on-coming vehicle, they flagged it down and after pulling out the driver simply identified as Oba, shot him and fled with his car.

In the ensuing confusion, the kidnapped person took to his heels, prompting the kidnappers to fire at him and injuring him in the process.

The sound of the gun attracted residents of the area who rescued the wounded man, while the suspected kidnappers fled in the snatched vehicle.

Similarly, in Fegge area of the commercial city of Onitsha, a woman was kidnapped in her house in the early hours of Sunday while getting ready for church service.

The state police command however says it is not yet aware of the incidents even as it expressed worry about the rising cases of kidnapping in the state, especially within the Onitsha axis.
