US-based Nigerian found dead after five days of abduction by suspected herdsmen

1 Mins read

The body of a US-based Nigerian, Prince Eloniyo Abuda, has been discovered five days after he was abducted by suspected herdsmen.

The deceased who resided in Atlanta, Georgia, was abducted last Saturday with two other men and a woman along the Benin-Auchi road.

According to The PUNCH, he was travelling from his hometown, Fugar in Etsako Central Local Government Area of Edo State to Lagos to catch a flight back to the US when he was abducted by the herdsmen.

After the payment of the ransom to free the other hostages, his decomposing body was discovered on Wednesday along the Benin-Auchi road end of the Benin bypass.

“Prince Abuda was shot by the abductors when he couldn’t walk anymore and slumped. The kidnappers didn’t want to leave him behind as they were afraid that he will reveal their hideout to security agencies and so decided to shoot him,” a source said.

In his reaction, the Edo State Police Public Relations Officer, Chidi Nwabuzor said, “The command is fully aware and the Commissioner of Police personally led operatives to the scene this morning and they are still in the forest on active combing of the bush.”
