BREAKING: Abducted Anambra Commissioner Released

It has been jubilation galore at Isuofia in Aguata local government area of Anambra State since early Sunday morning as the Anambra State Commissioner for Public Utilities, Mr. Emeka Ezenwanne, has been released by his abductors.

Mr. Ezenwanne was abducted last Wednesday, during an interactive session an illustrious son of the town, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, had with the youths of the community.

Some gunmen had invaded the Isuofia Civic Centre venue of the programme and gunned down three policemen. People scampered for safety. Some of them sustained injuries in the process. Luckily, Soludo escaped unhurt.

The traditional ruler of the town, Igwe (Col.) C.A.O Muoghalu (retd.) had expressed the collective indignation of his people when he invoked the wrath of the land against the perpetrators of the dastardly act. He mourned the desecration of the common heritage of his people and said he would soon invite the Executive Council of Isuofia People’s Assembly, the Isuofia Women Council and the relevant institutions “to embark on cleansing of the temple of our fathers, the Civic Centre.” He asked the President-General of the town, Mr. Jude Okeke, to disallow the use of the Civic Centre until a purification exercise was carried out.
