Tochukwu Ene
Ten days after two junior secondary school JSS III students of the Federal Government College, Okposi, in Ohaozara council Area of Ebonyi State, were abducted by unknown persons, their decomposing bodies have been found in a local river in the area. The pupils, Tochukwu Ene pictured above), and Chukwuemeka Ugwu, were kidnapped on Thursday, May 12th, 2016 around the school.

A family source of one of the deceased who disclosed this to the Nation in Enugu on Tuesday, said “their corpses were found floating in a local river on Sunday, May 22nd, 2016”. It was learnt that police in Ebonyi have made some arrests, including some members of staff of FGC, Okposi in connection with the sad incident.

Among those arrested is the traditional ruler of the community who is now facing interrogation at the Police Command headquarters, Abakaliki.

The family source added that before the two boys were murdered, no attempt was made by the suspected kidnappers to reach the boys’ parents, Barrister and Mrs. Bato Eneh and Mr. and Mrs. Bonny Ugwu, aka Bonjoe, for a ransome request. The two late students just finished their Junior NECO examinations on the very day they were kidnapped.

Remains of the students were laid to rest on Tuesday at their respective hometowns following autopsy carried out by police pathologists to determine the possible causes of their deaths.

However, speculation are rife that some youths of the area, including an unnamed staff of the FGC, Okposi,may have masterminded the dastardly act.


  1. That's horrible. May their souls rest in peace

  2. People that did that will never find peace in their lives.
