Abia State Commissioner of Police, CP Kenechukwu Onwumelie, has officially confirmed the apprehension of two suspects in connection with the abduction of Professor Godwin Emezue, a lecturer at Abia State University Uturu (ABSU).

The incident occurred on January 26th when Prof. Emezue was taken while refueling his vehicle at a filling station near his residence in Umuopara, Umuahia South LGA.


During the harrowing ordeal, the assailants seized Prof. Emezue, also the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, and forcibly took him away in a Lexus SUV, leaving behind his wife’s ATM card.

Fortunately, after spending 11 agonizing days in captivity, the ABSU don was eventually released on Tuesday night.

CP Onwumelie affirmed the custody of the two suspects, underscoring that the investigation is ongoing to unravel further details of the crime.

Governor Alex Otti, addressing the press on Friday night, revealed the arrest, noting that the ringleader was apprehended at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos while attempting to flee to Turkey.

The second accomplice was nabbed in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Both suspects have been brought back to Abia State to face justice.

Governor Otti attributed the successful operation to Operation Crush, a collaborative security initiative implemented by his administration, which has been instrumental in clamping down on criminal activities across the state.
