Ikenga said Attama was abducted on May 14, at about 10pm on Nnewi Road in his RAV 4 jeep, by a gang of five men.
He said the gang had already demanded N10m ransom from the victim’s family before the victim escaped and alerted security guards in the area.
He also stated that the command had recovered some vehicles abandoned by hoodlums who escaped from a gun battle with a vigilante group around 4pm on May 16, on Ifite Road, Awka.
