The abducted former Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nduka Eya, has regained his freedom.
Eya was kidnapped in the early hours of Thursday by armed persons who stormed his Ezillo Street, Independence Layout residence in Enugu.
The Enugu State Police Public Relations officer (PPRO), Mr Ebere Amaraizu, in a statement made available to newsmen this afternoon, said Chief Eya was rescued by operatives of the Anti-Kidnap Unit of the Command through intelligence information and coordinated operation conducted in the early hours of today (Saturday).
Eya, according to Amaraizu, was rescued unhurt by the operatives following an operation carried out in a forest along Enugu/Abakiliki Expressway in which one suspect identified as Chibundu Amadi was arrested. Recovered from the suspect is a locally made gun and he is helping the operatives in their investigations, the PPRO said.
He disclosed that Chief Eya has re-united with his family while a manhunt has been launched for other suspects.
