Oct 22, 2016 –  Amaechi Ahanonu Is Dead: Owerri Millionaire Murdered By Kidnappers Who Collected N0.5Million Ransom From Family

Some suspected kidnappers have allegedly killed an Owerri-based businessman Amaechi Ahanonu after they ordered his family to pay N500,000 ransom.

The suspected kidnappers had on Monday morning, stormed the Ahanonu’s house in Amato Orogwe in the Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State and whisked him away.

Our correspondent learnt that the gunmen, who were armed, arrived the residence of the businessman and abducted him after shooting sporadically into the air.

It was learnt that the kidnap victim was relaxing with his family members as of the time he was taken away.

The gunmen, it was gathered, later established contacts with the family of the victim and demanded N10m as ransom.

His family, however, could only raise N500, 000 before the abductors allegedly murdered him.

The amount provided by his family was said to have provoked his abductors, who allegedly killed him and dropped his corpse on a bush path along Ndegwu/Orogwe Road in Owerri West Local Government Area of the state.

“We found his lifeless body this morning (Friday) along Ndegwu /Orogwe Road, but this was after the family had taken the sum of N500, 000 to the Okuku forest where they held him hostage. This is very absurd,” he said.
