The Nkalagu (Ebonyi) and Idodo (Enugu) axes of the road are the most affected, as cases of abduction keep increasing daily.

“Contacts were made and it was established by their families that they never got home. The families said that some people contacted them and said they were kidnappers and were demanding ransom. The negotiations are between the families and kidnappers and as an organisation, we have been doing as much as we can,” he said.

In another report, a Nigerian soldier with service number 23NA/85/10147, Private Yahaya Sani, has reportedly stabbed his colleague, Private Aliyu Musa, for allegedly accusing him of stealing in Enugu State.

The Eastern Updates gathered that Sani and the late Musa are attached to the 74 Supply and Transportation Brigade, 82nd (Airborne and Amphibious) Division of the Nigerian Army.

A source told reporters that Musa had complained on Monday night that his phone was missing, alleging that Sani was the only person with him before the loss.

The source added that Musa stabbed Sani with a dagger on his head during an argument about the phone.

The incident came a few days after another soldier attached to the 82nd (Airborne and Amphibious) Division, Private Mohammed Adamu, with service number 21NA/80/0365, killed a pregnant woman, Miss Hauwakulu Tabra.
