Engr Emeka Ezenwanne, the Anambra State Commissioner for Public Utility who was abducted on Wednesday night, has been released.

Ezenwanne was abducted by gunmen who stormed the venue of an interactive session between an APGA governorship aspirant, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, and youths from his neighbourhood, Isuofia.

The gunmen killed three police officers and abducted the commissioner, who had climbed the fence in an effort to flee but was ambushed by the gunmen.

 

A source who spoke said, “I just spoke to the commissioner now. He has been freed, and he is in good health too.

“He denied paying any ransom, and also told me that his abductors did not maltreat him in anyway.”

It was gathered that Ezenwanne, the Hon. Commissioner for public Utilities in Anambra State, who is among the youngest commissioners in the State, was released at about 1am on Easter day.
