Okay o! Thank God that this time around, the story you are about to read did not originate from IMO STATE BLOG. Let it not be as if we are just out to tarnish the image of our”govmenti”.
This is what the Sun Newspapers are reporting.
The people of Umuoti Village, Iniyishi in Ikeduru Local Government Area of Imo State are in a pensive mood following the kidnap of a prominent native of the area, Mr. Hyacinth Ibe on Wednesday, December 27, 2011. Ibe, an Abuja based business man was abducted by a five-man- gang at 12 am, who broke into his house, shot his two daughters and killed his wife, Alice, before taking him away to unknown destination.
Daily Sun reliably gathered from a close associate of the family that the business mogul had concluded plans to move into his new house by December 30, 2011 before the gunmen struck. While his two daughters are receiving treatment at the intensive care unit of the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Owerri, the corpse of his wife has been deposited at the Aladinma Hospital, morgue, Owerri.
Ironically, Ibe, who is still in captivity as at the time of filing this report, is not aware that his wife, Alice was killed in the episode, even as the abductors are demanding 10 million ransom for his release. His aged mother is still oblivious of the trauma that has befallen his son because family members and other sympathizers have decided to conceal the sad news from her.
It was further learnt that Ibe’s vehicle was later recovered and now packed at the Police Station, Iho, Ikeduru Local Government Area.
Who the hell is sponsoring these bloody hoodlums in Imo? Repent now or the wrath of God will visit you very soon.
