Kidnapped Ebonyi Govt House Cameraman Regains Freedom

Ebonyi State Government House cameraman, Uchenna Nwube, has been abducted by gunmen.

 

The kidnapped cameraman attached to the Ebonyi State Government House Uchenna Nwube has regained freedom from his abductors.

A source, who confirmed the development to Channels Television on Saturday, said Nwude was freed after the abductors were given an unspecified sum of money. The source, however, explained that the amount was a shortfall from the N50m earlier demanded by the kidnappers.
