The couple, it was further gathered, was heading to Owerri Airport, Imo State before the incident happened.

When contacted, the state police spokesman, Ikenga Tochukwu, said he had not received such information

He said he would make enquiries to find out what actually played out.

But one of the senior police officers, who did not disclose his name, confirmed the incident.

The officer added that the couple was dropped off by the hoodlums at Ukpor, Nnewi South Local Government Area of the state at the midnight on Monday.

A relation to the victims, who pleaded anonymity, said they were kidnapped at Okija on their way to the airport in Owerri by unknown persons

The source said that two of the policemen with the couple were killed by the gunmen.

One of the victims (the husband) was stabbed by the gunmen, while the driver was seriously wounded and was rushed to the hospital

“They released them around 11 pm. One of their relations received a call from one of the victims to send the driver to come and pick them up at Ukpor where they dropped them off.

“We are traumatised. I flew back to Anambra last night. I thank God they are alive and back to their community,” the source said.
