The Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has said kidnapping is a capital offence in the state.

Ikpeazu stated this in Umuahia on Thursday while launching the Abia State Security Fund/Deployment of the Security Support and Resident Card, warning that “anybody who practices kidnapping in Abia shall die.”

He said the initiative of the programme was to monitor and identify residents, even in the bush, especially as the state is bordered by seven states.
