At about 9pm on Saturday, a couple was reportedly abducted in Ugwunagbo Local Government Area of Abia State.
The abducted couple are owners of a private school in Umuobasi Ukwu, Umugo community.
It was gathered that the kidnappers who operated in a black Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) trailed the couple while they were on their way back home.
They had gone to buy things that the school was to use for its graduation ceremony on Sunday in the same community.
A source said:
“They (husband and wife) were on their back after buying things for their school’s end of the year party on Sunday.
“As we speak, there are fears in the school at the moment as people are not sure if the graduation ceremony for today will hold.
“How is it going to hold when the school proprietors are not around?”
A security agent in Aba also confirmed the incident saying;
“We learnt that they drove off through Umuozuo community pathway with their victims.
“We are monitoring things and will go after them as soon as there is lead to their whereabouts.”
