An Enugu based tailor simply identified as Uzoma has been kidnapped by hoodlums suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.

The tailor who is also a member of the Coal City Keep Fit Club was said to be returning from a business trip to Aba when the commercial bus in which they were travelling was waylaid.

This incident occurred at about 8:pm at the popular Lokpanta Hausa Fulani settlement in Abia state. 

Their plans to pick up more victims from the bus was thus scuttled and they decided to take the only passenger in the front sit of the bus which happened to be the fashion designer.

The Advocate learnt that the kidnappers have already established contact with the victim’s family in Enugu.

The kidnappers have reportedly spoken with his vwife, demanding a ransom of N2m.

However, it could not be ascertained if the matter was reported to security operatives.

Travelers and transporters plying the Enugu - Port-Harcourt Expressway have continued to lament the criminal activities especially kidnapping and armed robbery around the Lokpanta area. 

They have repeatedly urged the security agencies in Abia and Imi states to provide adequate security on the road.
