This is becoming very idiotic well it has always been. I can only wonder about the people kidnapped just because some people thought they have money eg like those coming back from europe, america, asia, etc These are some quick #500,000 to be made based on their thinking. Nigeria, as usual has no deterent except sweeping out a whole village. Sometimes, these peps are police people too but I must say this is becoming too much especially in Anambra state. With this trend i see nigeria becoming the capital of microchips because soon everyone will have a micro chip tracker to enable the police hunt them down. On another note, you might have to pay the police either 1/2 or 1/4th of the ransome by the time u done and the thiefs will bring their bail out money too. So sad and pathetic cuz naija just doen't get it. A credible and functioning leadership is immienent in nigeria. The laws and structures to deliver a good law are non existent.

May God intervene o.

Awka — BARELY a week after the kidnap of a popular Nollywood actor, Chief Pete Edochie in Onitsha, Anambra state, another notable figure in the state, this time, a popular Onitsha based transporter and industrialist, Chief Godwin Okeke, popularly known as G.U.O, was kidnapped yesterday at about 9.45 am by armed men, numbering about 12 in front of All Saints Cathedral Onitsha.

Chief Okeke, who is the owner of GUO Transport Company, according to eyewitnesses was abducted immediately he came out of the Cathedral, were he had worshipped.

Unknown to the transported, the kidnappers had laid ambush for him, as he was said to have attended his usual 7am service at the Cathedral and immediately he came out of the cathedral gate, his captors swooped on him.

The kidnappers who operated with a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) and a Toyota Commuter bus, according to eyewitnesses, went to the Onitsha Central Police Station, where they allegedly dislodged the Police before striking at the Cathedral, which is just a stone throw from the station.

A typical luxury bus terminus.

His kidnapping was however, not without a struggle, as according to eyewitness, he (Okeke) gave them a tough battle before he was overpowered by the gunmen, who shot from the police station to adjoining streets in the area.

Okeke,about 70 years old, known for his agility and security consciousness, was said to have engaged the gunmen in a fierce battle, kicking one of them into the nearby gutter on the road and disarming another before his wife, who was in his company went for the gun of the one who fell into the gutter but was pushed away by one of the gunmen.

The eye witness further stated that Chief Okeke rushed to one of the kidnappers, dispossessed him of his gun and was about to fire before another one hit him from the butt of the gun, before taking back the gun from him.

Nigeria, on the road to final destruction.

Food for thought for those championing democracy as it stands. Trust me; we need the military and fast. We need return of sanity.
