Abia kidnap kingpin on the run ...Declared wanted…Accused of abduction of 15 pupils
A suspected kidnap kingpin believed to be terrorising Aba, Abia State, Mr. Obioma Nwankwo (aka Osisi ka Nkwu) has been declared wanted by the state Police Command.
Nwankwo had allegedly caused residents of Aba and the police nightmare as no day passed without news of members of his gang allegedly killing a policeman or abducting a resident of the city.
His reign of terror climaxed when his gang allegedly abducted 15 pupils of Abayi International School, Osisioma and took them to his camp in Ugwuati in Ukwa West Local Government Area of Abia State, which incidentally was his hometown.
Nwankwo, who is about 35 years old is believed to be the mastermind of high profile cases of kidnap that had taken place in Abia State in the past three years including that of the 15 pupils who were freed by soldiers at a camp in Ugwuati believed to belong to the wanted man.
