Imo State Police Command yesterday exhumed the remains of a 63-year-old kidnap victim, Madam Ogo Omereji, who was kidnapped, murdered and buried in a shallow grave by her abductors that were incidentally her nephews.

The family of the victim, who was abducted in her farm on September 26 by a three man kidnap gang, was said to have paid N500, 000 to the kidnappers who eventually killed the victim who may have recognised them.

Addressing newsmen shortly after the decomposed body was exhumed from the grave in the thick forest, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwerem, said that following the report of the kidnap, operatives of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the State Police Command arrested the three suspects, who confessed to have abducted the woman who they subsequently murdered and buried in the forest at Awara in Ohaji/Egbema Council Area of the state.

He added, “You will recall that the Imo Police Command recently launched Operation Nkpochapu also known as Operation Wipe out criminals in the state. The initiative is already yielding results.

“Again in our resolve to get close to the public, the Command launched a telephone directory which has been distributed to the people through traditional rulers.”

The names of the suspects were as Gift Emeka (26), Sunday Uchenna (28) and Emeka Chinedu (27).

Meanwhile, the leader of the community, Chief Obieze O Obieze said that the parents of the suspects have been banished from the community, which has been thrown into turmoil following the news of the victim’s death.
