“This is the second time gunmen are abducting road users this year, and the fourth time in two years,” he said.

The community leader said Enugu-Agidi, alongside neighbouring towns, would hold an emergency meeting targeted at combing bushes in the area to ensure that criminal elements do not have an abode there

“The man is still in captivity while his wife and child were released about 3am this morning. I have contacted the Police and they promised to do their best to rescue the abductees.

“Incidence of abduction on Enugu-Agidi-Nawgwu road has become worrisome, we need increased security presence there and total repair of the road for smooth drives,” he said.

Police Public Relations Officer, Anambra Command, SP Haruna Mohammed who confirmed the incident said there was a distress call from the area and a team of Rapid Response Squad had been drafted to the scene.

Mohammed did not confirm if it was a case of abduction as there had not been a formal report on the incident at the Police Command.
