“This is to bring to the attention of ndi Ohuhu that the family of our brother, Mr. Chucks Onuoha, contacted the Union this morning to report that around 11 p.m. last night, about five armed men broke into their home at Umungasi near Umuagu and abducted him, as well as his green Nissan Pathfinder”.

“The abductors have contacted the family with a ransom demand, according to the family.”

“We once again urge ndi Ohuhu and all non-indigenous residents of Ohuhu to take responsibility for their own safety, the safety of their families, and the environment by limiting late-night movements and ceremonies and avoiding all acts of carelessness that may jeopardize their personal safety, the safety of their loved ones, and the environment.”
