Chief Ambrose Ogbu, the traditional ruler of Isu Community in Onicha Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, has been kidnapped in his palace by gunmen.

The spokesman of the Police Command in Ebonyi, SP Chris Anyanwu, told NAN on Thursday in Abakaliki that the police were aware of the incident.

“Yes, we are aware of the abduction of the traditional ruler. It happened in Isu, Onicha.

“The fact now is that we have yet to get the full details,” the police added.

A family source, who preferred anonymity, said that Ogbu, who is Ezentum II of the community, was kidnapped, alongside his gateman, between 8pm and 9pm on Wednesday.

“He was kidnapped in his palace. The kidnappers came with motorcycles in their numbers and ordered the gateman to call the chief out.

“As chief was coming out, the kidnappers collected his Hundai SUV car key and immediately forced him into the car and drove away.

“Right now, no contact has been established with the family. We pray he returns back alive,” the source said. (NAN)
