Abia Government Uncovers a Secret Tunnel Where Kidnappers Hide Their Victims

The government of Abia State has uncovered a hidden tunnel where kidnappers keep their victims at Lokpanta in Umunneochi council area of the State. Ferdinand Ekeoma, Special Adviser to Governor Alex Otti on Media and Publicity, said the tunnel was discovered by men of the Operation Crush security team who raided the area.

He explained that the hidden tunnel was made visible as the government deployed earth-moving equipment to the area. “The hidden tunnel was discovered as the state government led by Governor Alex Otti, deployed earth-moving equipment to clear the area after the criminal cartel succumbed to the superior firepower of the government-backed Operation Crush. “We will not surrender an inch of our territory to criminals,” Ekeoma stated.

During the launch of the Abia State Joint Security Task Force (Operation Crush), Otti ordered security agencies to ensure that all criminals, especially kidnappers making life hellish for the people were brought to justice and their criminal infrastructure and architecture destroyed.

Meanwhile, Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has urged President Bola Tinubu to wash his hands off the case of the agitator by setting him free.

Ejimakor was reacting to revelations that former President Muhammadu Buhari prevented his government from assassinating Kanu. Buhari’s former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said the immediate past President opted for Kanu’s arrest instead of assassination as proposed by some government officials.

However, Ejimakor said Adesina’s revelation shows that Kanu was never meant to get a fair trial in Nigeria. Posting on X, the lawyer wrote: “Buhari’s self-confessed plot to assassinate MAZI NNAMDI KANU underscores the lingering notion that #MNK was never meant to get a fair trial in Nigeria. “That’s why they resorted to extraordinary rendition & illegal detention. President Tinubu should wash his hands off & #FreeMNK.”
