Kidnappers on Monday night abducted a female on-air presenter, Chinenye Iwuoha, working with the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), Pacesetter FM, Umuahia, Abia State capital. It was gathered that the incident occurred near Amakanma Housing Estate in Umuahia South Local Government Area of the state at about 7:00p.m. when she was going home after the close of the day’s work.
Some eyewitnesses said the gunmen operating in a motorcycle and Toyota Sienna space bus had trailed the Hilux van in which the victim and the station’s General Manager, Uche Ndukwu, were heading home with after her shift. Before her abduction, the hoodlums reportedly shot the company’s driver, one Kingsley Onyeokuche, before speeding off with their captive, perhaps to stop him from giving a hot chase after them.
According to a source, “when the gunmen double-crossed the Hilux van, they were shouting who is the GM? Before they shot the driver in the stomach and whisked Iwuoha away in their SUV.”
