A former Head of Service to Osisioma Local Government Area of Abia State identified as Eze has been kidnapped by gunmen. Eze, an indigene of Etiti Amavo autonomus community in Osisoma LGA, was said to have been kidnapped in Aba, according to the Nation.
His abduction is coming on the heels of renewed spate of insecurity in Abia especially in Aba and Umuahia metropolis. Recently a bet naija shop located at Aba was raided by robbers and in the process an innocent citizen was shot and injured. Also last week the residence of the National President of Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Chris Isiguzo was attacked by robbers and carted away cash and valuables.
Residents of Aba and Umuahia have decried the rising spate of insecurity in the cities while caling on the government and security agencies to do something to protect their lives and properties.
