    5 Corp Members From Ibadan Reportedly Kidnapped On Their To Camp By Gunmen Have Regained Freedom

    Gunmen

    Gunmen kidnapped five National Youth Service Corps members on their way to orientation camps in Akwa Ibom and Rivers states on Wednesday.

    Two other passengers on the bus transporting the corps members were kidnapped as well.

    The fresh graduates and other victims were on their way from Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, to Rivers and Akwa Ibom states, where they were scheduled to begin their three-week NYSC orientation.

    The gunmen abducted them along the Owerri-Port Harcourt Expressway and taken to the Umuapu forest in Imo State’s Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area.

    Dasuki Galadanchi, the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Imo State Police Command, told journalists after the victims were rescued by the police that the kidnappers made contact with the corps members’ families and demanded N5 million in ransoms.

    The corps members’ names were given by the CP as Abiola Temitope, Olubisi Adekanmi, Jose Temitayo, Folarin Opeyemi, and Shonibare Ademola.

    Leonard Uzondu and Raymond Ojodahe were also identified as victims.

    The CP said, “The victims were travelling from Ibadan to Port Harcourt. Five out of the seven of them are prospective corps members. They were on their way to the NYSC orientation camps in Rivers and Akwa Ibom states for the three weeks camping.

    “They were kidnapped around 5 am on Wednesday at Umuapu, on the Owerri-Port-Harcourt Expressway. The kidnappers took them to a forest and dispossessed them of all their belongings, including money, phones, ATM cards and voter cards.

    “The gunmen compelled them to call their relatives at home to speak to them. Immediately contact was established, they instilled fear in the parents and demanded N5m for their freedom.”

    “This is part of the dividends of community policing. I urge Imo State residents to keep sharing information with the police. We cannot do it alone.”

    The CP explained that the command’s Counter-Terrorism Unit was alerted through intelligence gathering.

    “The operatives went into the bush, and when the kidnappers saw the officers, they abandoned their victims and fled,” he said. We rescued them unharmed, but the hoodlums stole their valuables.

    Galadanchi stated that he had ordered an investigation into the incident in order to apprehend the fleeing suspects.

    According to one of the victims, Abiola, “They stopped our bus and ordered us to follow them into the forest at gunpoint.” They were five men armed with guns and machetes
