The Medical Director of Abia State Polytechnic, Aba, Dr. Eze Nwokocha, was on Sunday kidnapped by some gunmen in Aba, the commercial hub of the state. The medical practitioner was allegedly abducted at about 7pm on Sunday around Allwell Crescent, near the Aba Fire Service Station.
A source close to the medical director said he was returning to his house after attending a village meeting when the abductors, who had trailed him, blocked his car and took him away in another vehicle.
It was gathered that the suspects had contacted the family and demanded a ransom of N50m.
The PPRO said the kidnap case had yet to be reported to the police.
