Gunmen Kidnap Another Ex-lawmaker In Anambra
Gunmen have abducted a former member of the Anambra State House Assembly, Benson Nwawulu, in the Ihiala Local Government Area of the state.
Mr Nwawulu was abducted from his house on Sunday, the police have confirmed the incident.
A family source said Mr Nwawulu’s son has contacted some members of the assembly, who are his father’s associates, for financial assistance.
But it is not clear, for now, if his abductors have made contact with the family for ransom.
When contacted, the police spokesperson in the state, Tochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the incident.
According to PREMIUM TIMES on Wednesday night, he said the police were working hard to track down the suspects and free the former lawmaker.
“The command has since launched an operation aimed at rescuing the victim and arresting the abductors,” Mr Ikenga.
The lawmaker left the assembly in 2019 at the expiration of his tenure. He later contested for and lost an election for the House of Representatives.
