Bizarre! Imagine young men would abduct and kill 63-yeard-old woman, who incidentally is their nephew.
But that is the story Madam Ogo Omereji, who was kidnapped, murdered and buried in a shallow grave by her abductors that were incidentally her nephews.
This is after the family of the victim, who was abducted in her farm on September 26 by a three man kidnap gang, was said to have paid N500, 000 to the kidnappers who eventually killed the victim who may have recognised them.
The police in Imo State have exhumed the body of the deceased after they had arrested the mindless criminals.
The State Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Andrew Enwerem, told newmen in Owerri that following the report of the kidnap, operatives of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the State Police Command arrested the three suspects, who confessed to have abducted the woman who they subsequently murdered and buried in the forest at Awara in Ohaji/Egbema Council Area of the state.
Enwerem spoke shortly after the decomposed body of the elderly woman was exhumed from the grave in the thick forest.
He said, “You will recall that the Imo Police Command recently launched Operation Nkpochapu also known as Operation Wipe out criminals in the state. The initiative is already yielding results.
“Again in our resolve to get close to the public, the Command launched a telephone directory which has been distributed to the people through traditional rulers.”
The police gave the names of the suspects as Gift Emeka (26), Sunday Uchenna (28) and Emeka Chinedu (27).
