kingWife of the traditional ruler of Abba- Igogoro in Igbo Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State, Igwe Omale Nwogbo, Adiza, has been kidnapped by unknown persons who invaded her home. The woman was kidnapped days after some armed men invaded the palace and inflicted machete cuts on her husband before shooting at three other persons with him in his palace at about 8pm.

According to police sources, the traditional ruler was meeting with some people in his Igogoro palace when the gunmen struck and reportedly shot one Joshua Urama at the back while Igwe Ogbo himself, Emmanuel Tobechukwu Idoko and Sunday Ogbo sustained injuries on their heads and faces. Igwe Ogbo was said to have been reportedly given three machete cuts on his head.

The attack took place at a time members of the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the local government were holding the Ward Congress at Enugu Ezike to elect delegates for the local government congress to elect chairmanship candidates for the local government elections scheduled for later in the year.

Igwe Ogbo and the other victims, who sustained serious bullet wounds, were rushed to the Bishop Shanahan Hospital Annex in Enugu Ezike, the council headquarters for urgent medical attention. However, Adiza, 85, was abducted by some people who reportedly claimed to have come from the neighbouring Isugwu community, exactly four days after her husband was attacked in his palace.

The police were still trying the unravel the reasons behind the attack on Ogbo when his wife was abducted.
