Anxiety as kidnappers place N15m ransom on Enugu Senatorial aspirant’s father

There is tension in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State following the abduction of Chief Lawrence Chukwuemeka Eya by suspected kidnappers.
Eya, who is about 68 years old, was trailed to Kogi State from where he was abducted two days ago.

DAILY POST reports that the development has thrown his Igbo-Eze North kinsmen into anxiety, especially as the kidnappers have placed N15m ranson on him.

His son, a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senatorial aspirant for Enugu North District, Mr. Chinedu Eya, who confirmed the incident on Wednesday, begged his father’s abductors to free him.

Eya, who said political colouration may not be ruled out, said it was unhealthy for any persons to introduce such into Enugu politics.

“Right now, I really feel pain as a man, I cried, because the old man cannot be suffering, he put his life on the line for some of us to survive. Now that he should be benefiting somebody is coming to intimidate him.

“I don’t know where it is coming from but I am only saying that people should change their style of politics, and and not do politics that old way. Let’s do politics with that mindset of sportsmanship, where the loser is still a winner.

“We can see ourselves, greet ourselves, hug ourselves and do other things. We must not become enemies because there is something. I am not concluding yet, it my be political, it might be anything. I think it is targeted at me, but it will not affect me.”

He confirmed that the family was in talks with the kidnappers, stating that “yes, they asked us to bring N15 million; they are coming down, we believe God that something great will happen.

“But we are begging them to release him even without ransom, because he is a father; he is a father to those people holding him and they should treat him as such.

“My father is a very easy going man; since I was born, he has never been invited to a police station, he has never had issues with anybody. So, he does not deserve this kind of treatment.”
