Attacking gunmen abducted a former Major-General of the Nigerian Army in Imo State.

The victim, whose sole name is Maj Gen RC Duru (rtd), was abducted last weekend in the Orji General region of Imo State’s Owerri North Local Government area.

According to accounts, the Major-General was ambushed while operating his personal black Mercedes Benz ML car.

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

“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 ongoing 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 worsened in the South-East as a result of an increase in armed attacks.

Many of the deadly attacks in the region have taken place in the states of Anambra and Imo.

In addition to attacking government employees and buildings, gunmen in the region have also targeted military personnel and staff members of other security agencies.

The region’s deadly attacks have been attributed by the Nigerian government to the pro-Biafra group IPOB, however, the gang has denied any involvement in the matter.
