Kidnapped FETHA CMD Regains Freedom
The kidnapped Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki (FETHA), Dr Emeka Ogah, has reportedly been freed by his abductors.
Ogah was kidnapped on Nov 15 at Ajaokuta, Kogi on his way to Abuja on an official assignment.
The CMD was kidnapped alongside the hospital’s Director of Administration, Chief Christopher Ogbu and Mr Sylvester Ugama, the Director of Finance while his driver escaped with bullets wounds from the abductors.
Reacting to the development, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Ebonyi State Command, ASP Loveth Odah, disclosed that Ogah and others have reunited with their families.
“The kidnap victims were released by the abductors on Saturday night around the area they were abducted and they are presently in good state of health.
“I cannot confirm whether ransom was paid for their release but the kidnapping unit of the command is working in collaboration with its counterpart in Kogi to track and arrest the kidnappers,” he said.
