the kidnapped girls, Ejura and Onekwu Opaluwah
Five gunmen have kidnapped two female students of Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State from their home in the Karmo area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on Sunday.
The girls, Ejura and Onekwu Opaluwah, were taken away in the booth of a blue Honda car with number plate, HR 152 ABC, in what started off as a robbery incident at 5.00 p.m.
“It was about 5 p.m that evening when five armed men came into the house and went straight to the room of the girls’ father, Mr Samson Opaluwah, an engineer. They robbed him of his valuables. As they were leaving, they took both girls and put them in the booth of the car.
“The abductors then called yesterday asking us to pay N200 million ransom, which they eventually reduced to N150 million.”
An uncle of the missing girls, Mr. Amadi Opaluwah, told Vanguard. He declined to give more information for fear of the girls’ safety, but said he believes the abduction was not politically motivated as the father of the girls, who is the procurement officer at the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, is a civil servant, not a politician.
“My brother is not a politician; he has no interest in politics, so I don’t think there is any political undertone to this. We are pleading with the abductors to release the girls, they are innocent. Also, I want my nieces to have faith, be calm and patient. By God’s grace, they will be home soon,” he assured.

The suspects being paraded
Who is really benefiting from this Boko Haram madness? Why will some Nigerians from the South East go all the way to supply arms to Boko Haram in the North
for them to continue killing?
Some men from Imo State, who were heading to the North, were intercepted in Nsukka, Enugu State, by men of the Nigerian Army as they were travelling in disguise with a bus to their destination.
One of the army officers who
spoke to reporters under anonymity disclosed that a Police Corporal also serving in Imo State Police Command was involved in the dirty arms deal.
The army officer said: “When
we asked the occupants of the vehicle to come down, we discovered a police corporal in uniform among them. The corporal on getting down pretended to be pressed; he later ran away.”
Items recovered from the suspected Boko Haram arms dealers include 40 AK47 machines, 4 boxes of AK47 live ammunition, 100 pieces of live cartridges, Mopol khaki and charms concealed in a cap.
The men have all been handed over to relevant security apparatus for
