Sit-at-home: Unknown gunmen abduct Anambra market chairman

By Chinwe Nwacha, Onitsha

Palpable fear has gripped residents of Onitsha and its environs, Anambra State , following the  alleged abduction of the chairman of Mgbuka Amazu market, Onitsha, Chief Enibe Francis in the early hours of Monday, by a yet to be identified gunmen.

Impeccable inside market sources   stated that the market chairman was beaten to stupor after opening the market as directed by Governor Chukwuma Soludo before he was dumped into a waiting vehicle and whisked away to an unkwown destination .

Confirming the incident, the President of Anambra State  Markets Amalgamated Traders Association, ASMATA, Chief Humphrey Anuna, said he has been briefed and they have been making frantic efforts to establish contact with him.

He was said to have been whisked away when about five full armed men stormed his shop and shooting indiscriminately into the air,  beat him to stupor  and dumped him into boot of their SUV vehicle.

Mgbuka Amazu is an old motor  spare parts market situated in the  outskirt of Onitsha, off Owerri/Onitsha road.

Recall that Governor  Charles Chukwuma Soludo had some weeks ago directed market leaders in the State to open their markets on Mondays by observing prayer sessions and cleaning of the markets and drainages around the markets.
