Operatives of the Department of State Service have rescued Mr. Pius Maduka, the elder brother of owner of Coscharis Nigeria Ltd, Cosmas Maduka.
Pius, who was kidnapped nine days ago at Nnewi in Anambra State, was rescued at Orlu in Imo State.
His abductors were said to have demanded and collected N15m, but refused to release him.[eap_ad_1]
Thereafter, they demanded another N28m saying the amount was for the release of Pius and his wife, who was not kidnapped but whom the kidnappers had mistaken for another woman in captivity.
It was gathered that the SSS operatives stormed the hideout of the kidnappers, rescued Pius and killed one of the kidnappers and arrested four others. (Punch)[eap_ad_1]
