Nigeria: Chinese Nationals Abducted By Masked Gunmen In Ebonyi

Ebonyi state Police spokesperson, Loveth Odah reported that the victims, Messrs Sun Zhi Xim and Wang Qinghu, employees of Tonyi Chinese Group of Companies were abducted by armed men, who concealed their identities by wearing masks.

“They were abducted by a gang of masked armed men and the CP led a team comprising of the Deputy Commissioner of Police (operations) and other tactical personnel. We went to the scene and discovered that it was a vulnerable construction site, located inside a thick forest without any form of security; whether police or local vigilante.

“This forest is situated near Ivo River at a boundary between Enugu and Ebonyi, and we thoroughly combed the area to trace the kidnappers and possibly rescue the victims. We recorded no results, but our tactical team has been reinforced in the area to track the kidnappers.”

While urging the public to give the Police any information that could lead to the rescue of the kidnapped Chinese unharmed, Odah declined comment on the motivation for the attack, kidnapping for ransom is known to be prevalent in Nigeria.

It would be recalled that four emergency workers were abducted while returning from an assignment in oil-rich Rivers state just on Wednesday with confirmation that the  kidnappers had asked for N40million to secure the freedom of the four workers, as confirmed by family sources.
