Police raid Malaysian Forest, arrest 2 Vigilantes who kidnap and blame it on Fulani herdsmen


.

The police have discovered a shallow grave where the remains of the former Chief Security Officer for Uzo-Uwani LGA of Enugu State, Mr Ejiofor Enechi, were buried after being killed by his kidnappers, after his relations had paid N2 million ransom for his release.

.

.

Ejiofor’s shallow grave was found on March 15, 2017, at the Aniocha Forest, Nimbo, following the arrest of two top members of the kidnap gang whose names were given as Chijioke Ozor alias earthquake and one Anselem Ngana.

.

.

Both members were arrested after a fierce gun battle with members of the police anti-kidnap gang in Enugu who trailed the suspects to their hideout in the forest.

.

.

Ozor and Ngana were said to be members of the banned Oda Nimbo Vigilante Group in the area who had been involved in the kidnap of over 20 persons along the Nsukka- Uzo-Uwani – Onitsha road, in recent times. 

.

.

They were among about 30 other members of the dreaded group who were being hunted by security agents. Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Superintendent Ebere Amaraizu, said: 

.

.

“Our detectives discovered the shallow grave and the shrine where the gangsters took their victims to at the Aniocha Forest which stretches to Eshi River in Kogi State. 

.

.

Apart from Ejiofor’s remains, they found several motorcycles of other victims who must have been killed by same members of the vigilante group. 

.

.

Each time they kidnapped their victims, they blamed the action on Fulani herdsmen but it is now clear that the allegations against the Fulani herdsmen were diversionary. The forest is popularly known as Malaysia or Ugbo Ekwuru behind the Ugwuijoro Village in Nimbo.”
