A military top brass, Maj-Gen RC Duru (rtd), was abducted last weekend in Orji area, Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State.

“He was kidnapped by 4 persons in a Toyota Sienna,” a signal obtained by SaharaReporters read.

“The kidnappers went with his vehicle and checkpoints were informed.

His phone 08033567459 was tracked to Mba Itoli in Imo State before it was switched off.

“Efforts are on-going to locate the kidnappers and rescue the rtd General. All are requested to make efforts using all contacts (though discretely) to hasten return of the kidnapped General.

“Maj Gen Duru is a member of 33rd Regular and NDC 18.”

Security has deteriorated in the South-East with frequent attacks by armed persons in recent times.

Anambra and Imo states have witnessed some of the deadly attacks in the region.

Aside government officials and facilities, the military and officials of other security agencies have been targets of attacks by gunmen in the South-East.

The Nigerian government has accused pro-Biafra group, IPOB of being responsible for the deadly attacks in the region.

But the group has repeatedly denied its involvement in the attacks.
