Kidnappers over the weekend, invaded Nsukka and abducted a prominent lawyer, baker and a three-year-old boy of Model Primary School, Nsukka.

An eyewitness, who would not want his name in print, told Vanguard that the incident occurred around 7p.m. The eyewitness told Vanguard that both the lawyer and the baker allegedly resisted, but when the abductors started shooting into the air, people scampered for safety and the kidnappers forced their victims into their Sienna car and fled.

Meanwhile, the three-year-old boy, Ewezugachukwu, was abducted while school was in session. Reports revealed that the pupil had gone out of the class to urinate, when a woman offered him biscuit and took him away.
