“According to the victims, they said that they felt that they were not so far from the place they were kidnapped but due to the thickness of the forest, they could not see it.

“Every time they felt police presence around them, the kidnappers would shift them to another place. Like I told you, the place is a thick forest. It’s the river between Ivo Local Government Area and Uburu community; it’s also the boundary between Aninri area of Enugu State and Ebonyi State.”
