The Imo state police command has declared Chidera Njoku, a native doctor, wanted after recovering 90 rounds of AK47 Rifle and human skull in his shrine.

Chris Ezike, commissioner of police in Imo, made this disclosure while speaking with NAN on Tuesday in Owerri.

Ezike said through a calculated community policing and whistle blowing, the police raided the shrine at Ngor Okpala local government area of Imo and recovered the items.

He said the police were still trailing the suspect, who had been on the run since his shrine was raided, promising that he would soon be apprehended.

The police commissioner advised anyone against harbouring Njoku.

Meanwhile, Charles Nwachukwu, a priest, who was rescued from his abductors by the command, has narrated his ordeal while in captivity with his abductors.

Nwachukwu told NAN that he was made speechless, helpless and that they traumatised him for two days before he was rescued.

Four armed men in Nwangele local government area of Imo kidnapped Nwachukwu on June 16.

“I was in transit along Umuokpo Agbaja in Nwangele local government area when four armed men abducted me under gun point,” he said.

“My experience with the kidnappers was terrible and it will remain in my mind; I am yet to recover from the shock.”

Nwachukwu said the gang demanded N100 million as ransom but later withdrew N500 thousand from an ATM card in his custody.

The police commissioner said that the victim was rescued with an aid that led to his rescue in Umuokpo forest, Nwagele Local Government Area of the state.

He said when the issue was reported, some policemen were mobilised from the command, who went after the bandits and rescued the man unhurt.

“The police have gone digital and it is now almost impossible to carry out kidnapping successfully in Imo,” he said.

“Our value system has died; I see it as a sacrilege for anybody to think of kidnapping a priest.”
