Robbers Attack NLC Chairman’s House, Abduct His Wife

Armed robbers at the weekend attacked the residence of the chairman of Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Ebonyi state chapter, Mr Leonard Nkah at Mile 50 Abakaliki.

The robbers, five in number stormed the residence of the Chairman in the evening of Saturday and ransacked the house and took away some valuables including some undisclosed amount of cash.

Mr Nkah in a chat with The Nation confirmed the incident but noted that he was not around when the robbers struck.

“I was called by my wife around 9pm that robbers came to our house and demanded for my whereabouts. They said they got information that there was money that was brought in and that they need the money. They forced her to lie down despite the fact that she was pregnant. They ransacked the house and took whatever they could find but they were disappointed that there was no such huge amount of money in my house”

He lamented that the robbers physically attacked and abducted his wife and later dumped her in a bush.

“They assaulted my house help who opened the door when they came in, they also assaulted my wife and later abducted her. They beat her up while forcing her to lie down with her pregnancy which was difficult for her. They took her to other residents in the area where they also robbed before dumping her in the bush”

“I thank God I wasn’t there, if I was there maybe it may have been a different story. They had information that I had huge sum of money. I was gathering resources to organise this reception for the Governor today, maybe some people told them I have money”.

Mr Nkah urged the police to beef up security in the state during the Christmas to checkmate the activities of the criminals.

Also, a journalist, Mr Moses Erogu of Ebonyi State Broadcasting Corporation, EBBC, had his house bugged on Sunday Morning by unknown criminals.

Speaking, Mr Erogu, who is the Government House Abakaliki Correspondent of EBBC said the incident happened when he and the family were in the Church.

“I took my family to 6am mass and from there I went to work. Later my wife called me to come home and when I got there I saw that they broke into the house and ransacked the house, took away some valuables including a phone belonging to my sister and some cash in the house”.

Mr Erogu, whose building is located behind the state House of Assembly at Nkaliki lamented the increasing rate of criminal activities in the area and called on the police to do more to secure the area.

Police spokesman in the area, Loveth Odah could not be reached for comments for comments.

But Special Assistant to Governor David Umahi on Internal security, Kenneth Ugbala confirmed the incident to The Nation.
