Chinwe Ugele, Umuahia.
It’s been four days since the abduction of Hon. Donatus Nwankpa, the Abia state chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), with no knowledge of his whereabouts.
Hon. Nwankpa was kidnapped alongside one of his aides, popularly known as Chigbu on the 28th of January, 2019 at Arungwa junction in Isiala Ngwa South LGA while on his way to Enyimba stadium in Aba for the state’s presidential rally on that day.
His vehicle was double crossed and the occupants, Nwankpa and Chigbu taken away forcefully to an unknown destination.
Chigbu has since regained freedom even though not without bruises and pains on the condition that he was still carrying a recovering surgery from hernia. But the chairman who appears to be the target of the kidnappers remains in their custody leaving party leaders and faithful to submit to the will of God in the case.
The publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mr. Benedict Godson told newsmen that the leaders of the party are making frantic but careful effort to secure the release of the chairman in sound health.
He said the party would not want to engage in any act capable of jeopardizing the safe release of Hon. Nwankpa, adding that they are hopeful that everything will turn out fine.
According to Mr. Godson, who described the party chairman as an amiable fellow with the capacity to disarm even his enemies with his calm and likeable disposition, the prayer on their lips now is for God to touch the hearts of the abductors to free Nwankpa unconditionally.
