My Abductors Were Instructed To Assassinate Me’ – Anambra PDP Chairman Narrates Ordeal

The Anambra State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Ken Emeakayi, who was kidnapped last weekend has regained his freedom.


Narrating his ordeal yesterday, Emekayi claimed that his captors were instructed to assassinate him but God intervened saved his life.

“On Sunday, the first day of December, 2013, I was on my way to Awka from Ihiala my local government when on reaching Anyasoijiji, a junction between Agulu and Nise on that Agukwunri junction, one RAV4 SUV overtook my car and blocked me and about four young men inside the vehicle, well-armed with weapons opened fire on me and my vehicle, he said.

“After some minutes of steady firing, one of them pulled me out of the vehicle and blindfolded me and pushed me into their waiting RAV4 vehicle and took me away to an unknown destination”.

The state PDP chairman said after some hours of driving, they pulled over and disembarked from the car and trekked for about 15 minutes until they got to a river bank he could not recognize, then his blindfold was removed.

He said from the manner his abductors spoke and acted, it was obvious that his kidnap was political.

According to him, the leader of the gang had promised to call him and tell him the politician behind his abduction.

Emekayi’s abduction had stirred controversy as the Anambra State Police Command claimed it did not received any report regarding the alleged kidnap.

  1. How can the police claim they didn’t receive any report when the news was all over the place. I heard bout it while in the Northern part of Nigeria. They just roped themselves if that’s what they(police)said.
