Kidnapped Woman Rescued in Ebonyi State

Nkechinyere Onachukwu has been rescued after being kidnapped last week by suspected herdsmen in Ishiagu, Ivo Local Government area, of Ebonyi State.

The woman, identified as Nkechinyere Onachukwu, was kidnapped last Tuesday from her farm in Amaonye Community, in Ishiagu. 

She was released on Monday, July 24, with the effort of security agencies in collaboration with the Council's Security, led by the chairman Emmanuel Ajah.

Ajah confirmed her release on Tuesday, July 25, saying the council would need to send security forces from out of state to track the kidnappers' movements. 

He added that security officials are still pursuing the kidnappers to catch them. 

Ajah also said several kidnappings documented by the local government were due to herdsmen crossing the border from Abia state to capture farm women and run back across the border.

Mrs. Onachuku said he walked for days before reaching the kidnappers' hideout in a thick forest.

She said; 

“I was on my farm harvesting cassava when I heard a whisper, I turned and saw many men from all directions coming at me, I tried to run but they caught up with me and took me hostage."

“As I started to shout for help they started flogging me with their machetes and asking me to keep quiet."

"They dragged me into the bush. From there we trekked through bushes through the night until we got to a place where they brought out a mat for us to lie down and sleep."

"The next day we continued till we got to their camp where they had make-shift huts. There they called their boss who understood pidgin English. The rest were speaking their language."

“Their boss came and I started begging him to let me go but he said no that they will deal with me, that Ishiagu people are wicked."

"He brought a phone and asked me to call anybody I know, so I called my husband and told him what happened. And from there they started negotiations.”
