The Commissioner of Police, Anambra State command, Sam Okaula, says some alleged kidnappers met their waterloo when they stormed the popular Lounge 24 Night Club and abducted the manager, Chidi Ojukwu aka Odaa Opuo.

According to the CP, the ever ready security operatives as soon as they were alerted,  trailed the kidnap suspects to a lonely area in Urum where they engaged the police in a shoot out. 

2 of the suspects were killed, while the third ran into the bush seriously injured. And the victim rescued unhurt.

This is the second attempt by these men of the underworld to infiltrate the very fortified security network initiated by Governor Obiano. The 2 attempts, first being that of Managing Director of Ifeanyichukwu Motors, were unsuccessful leading to death of the suspects.

The police are said to have discovered their arms cache and are on the search to pick the wounded gang member believed to be lying dead somewhere in the bush.

The police has also arrested an Okada man with a locally made pistol who specialized in collecting Ransom for the kidnappers.

Anambra State is widely known as the safest state in Nigeria and a No Go Area for any form of Crime.
