We are using this medium to inform the general public that the former Vice Chancellor of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, UNIZIK, Prof. Ilochi Okafor, SAN, who was kidnapped by a group of Unknown People at gun-point from his Residence at Enugu State on the 25th of November 2012, has been set FREE!!!
This information was made public by the Enugu state police command yesterday, 7th December 2012, that Professor Ilochi Okafor was released without paying any ransom to his captors?
The PPRO, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, said that the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) was released at Emene axis of the Coal City on 28th November, 2012.
According to Him, he told press men that his release followed a 2-day intensive manhunt for the alleged kidnappers by security operatives, also adding that Professor Ilochi Okafor had since united with members of his family.
The kidnappers demanded N50 million ransom from Okafor’s family, but according to the Enugu State police, they told news men no ransom was paid for Professor Ilochi Okafor release.
Kudos to the Nigerian Police for a work well done.
And may God surround Professor Ilochi Okafor and his family with his guardains.
Welcome back home Prof!
