Bank manager kidnapped in Anambra

29 August 2012, 16:12

Anambra - Bankers and other residents of Awka are now living in fear following the kidnap of a bank manager, Mr Tochukwu Nnadi, in the early hours of Wednesday.

The incident took place at about 7.30 a.m. in Awka while the banker was on his way to his office close to Mama Africana Kitchen in Iyiagu Estate.

A source said that contact had not been established with the kidnappers.

The source lamented the security situation in the state, saying: “My brother, we do not know where Anambra is heading to. We planned to close the bank because of fear but some of us summoned the courage to work.

``This man was just coming to the office in the morning and we learnt the people who kidnapped him were waiting in two cars, one was a Chrysler and the other was what they call End of Discussion with their doors wide open.

``Immediately he arrived, they came out and blocked him and took him away. Honestly, everybody is now in trouble in the state,” it added.

The police spokesman in the state, Mr Raphael Uzoigwe, said the issue was not reported to the command.

He said he had made contacts with the relevant divisions but that no such case was reported.

However, another source, who also wants to remain anonymous, told NAN that the matter was being handled secretly.

According to the source, that is the reason why it has not been reported to the police.
