The victims; a Lawyer and a business man are both from Isi-Uzo local government area of Enugu state.

The two were said to have travelled in a Sienna bus to their village and were returning to Enugu with their family when the heavily armed kidnappers accosted them around Ora river; the boundary between Enugu East and Isi-Uzo local government areas.

The two men were commanded out of the vehicle and taken away while the wife to one of the victims and children were left stranded on the road.

Those who crossed the scene shortly after that incident, at about 7pm said the kidnappers used vehicles to block the road and shut spradonically with some pallets of the bullet left behind in the scene.

Families of the abducted persons said the kidnappers were yet to make contact with them as at press time, but it was learnt Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi had ordered for combing of surrounding bushes in the area.

State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, could not be reached to react on the matter.
