American Woman Kidnapped & Killed During Vacation In Abia State, Nigeria

american lady kidnapped killed in nigeria

April 9, 2013 – American White Lady Kidnapped & Killed During Vacation In Abia State, Nigeria

This past weekend, a white woman, a citizen of the United States of American who married a native of Abia state was kidnapped and killed in Onicha Ngwa, Obingwa LGA of the state.

Following the incident, soldiers were said to have stormed the area, arrested some of those directly or indirectly involved in the abduction and death of the woman and set buildings believed to belong to the hoodlums and other criminals on fire.

Daily Sun gathered that the woman who came to Nigeria on vacation, was travelling in company with the children to see the husband’s relatives when on getting to a point in a community in Obingwa Local Government, the vehicle they were riding in was attacked by hoodlums who killed her driver and abducted her. The kidnappers took the woman to their hideout from where they made a demand of N25 million ransom. Soldiers were alerted to the incident and traced the hideout of the criminals to Onicha Ngwa where they made some arrests including a woman simply identified as Ejima and her boyfriend. Ejima’s house was where the white lady was allegedly brought every evening, blind-folded after spending the day inside the bush.

When soldiers stormed the community, Ejima fled her home, leaving her children behind. The children reportedly confirmed that the kidnappers’ victim was always brought to their house at evenings and taken out in the morning hours.

Following the revelation, the manhunt for the fleeing Ejima was intensified, leading to the arrest of her boyfriend whose name could not be ascertained as at the time of filing this report. A source told Daily Sun that Ejima’s boyfriend was with the soldiers, when she called from her hideout alerting him (boyfriend) to the danger ahead and that he should meet her somewhere so that together they could cross over to another country.

It was in the process of meeting with her boyfriend who she never knew was arrested that she too was arrested by soldiers and brought back to Aba. Ejima reportedly took the soldiers to their hideout where the white lady was said to have been kept, but before they could get to the place, their victim had died out of what was described as the trauma she went through in the hands of her captors.

Irked by the development, soldiers were said to have returned to the village, set Ejima’s house and those of other suspected kidnappers on fire as security had been beefed up in the community. A manhunt is said to be mounted for other fleeing members of the gang believed to be responsible for the pockets of kidnapping and child theft that are gradually becoming the vogue again in the commercial city and its environs.

Efforts made to reach the commander of 245 Battalion of the Nigeria Army, Asa and the Army Public Relations Officer (APRO), 14 Brigade failed, as they did not pick their calls.

However, an army officer who spoke under the cover of anonymity confirmed the incident but could not give further details.

      Instead of people calling a spade a spade, they are here defending the kidnappers. The soldiers did the right thing. This woman was married to a Nigerian and is visiting her husbands place when she was kidnapped and killed and yet some people don’t see anything bad in her killing. Those supporting the kidnappers are guilty themselves and they are all kidnappers and armed robbers. Evil will beget those who support evil. I will not be surprised if they are raised in the family of theives. Evil is in their blood. Up till today Ngwa people still eat human flesh. They are still canibals.

      @peculiar, your comment indicates you’ve been surrounded by demons and you’ll be taken out soon.Killing is a sin and anyone killing or supporting killing will go to hell. Hell is a terrible place and you better repent now. While you’re still enjoying freedom here on earth, stop running your mouth. In hell,many of them wish to sleep or rest but they can’t because the smell of burning human soul and spirit is tormenting them.The cry of millions of other people is disturbing their ears and minds.Another thing tormenting them besides the fire is the fact that many worry about friends and relatives they don’t want to come and join them in hell because they can’t get that message across and when they do,people like you peculiar still continue to be evil minded.
      Many churches preaching Jesus and peculiar is not remorse about evil animals taking the life out a woman who flew miles just to be with her husband. Her abductors must have raped her. She died because she was abused. If you found out she went to hell to continue an everlasting suffering,how would you feel? Jesus goes to hell most of the time taking people to witness that hell is real and a terrible place and weeps for even witches who refused to repent when they start crying and asking for a chance to come back to earth to repent. Watch your back peculiar!

    This is total bullshit.if it was a white lady that was killed,wtf.there are many of our brothers and sisters that have been killed,abused and even imprisoned for crimes they know nothing of.racism has never been put to an end eva since the era of racism started,it has always been known to be a global issue,whites dominates the blacks.its a pity that am sure their meeting was through the internet(yahoo yahoo),because even if it was through the internet,their us president had highlighted the so called never go areas in nigeria,due to increased number of criminally minded and criminally active events,yet the white lady still flew down in the name of the end what happened,she no collect,she collect.
    Soldiers are known to be brutally inspired to act in behaviours other people would describe as inhuman,they are devils.well nigerians need iron hand,if not crime would keep on persisting.imagine dem see how many trillions from abacha loot,many years after abachas death
    Nawa o
    To all those doing international dating,looking for a white lady,pls let them be.because if they come to nigeria,they would either get killed,duped,raped or even sef them fit die.abeg allow them marry their fellow white man o

      Kela, people should be free to marry who they want and love. This woman was married to a Nigerian and have children for him. Are you condeming him for marrying a white woman? What the kidnappers did was wrong and should be condemned. The soldiers did the right thing. Those supporting evil will beget evil. May the soul of this innocent lady rest in peace and their sins be on those who committed this act and those who support them.

    Instead of outright condenation @ peculier is making stupid and baseless comments. What is bad is bad however you look at it. Ejime and her accumplish must be made to face the music.they even made the children understand what they do meaning that the children will grow to become evil without calling it anything. It’s must unfortunate!!
    Ohhhh Nigeria my contry when will you grow?

    This is crazy! Instead of @ Peculier to condem the act o high profile evil deed he is making some stupid, provoking and unimaginable comments. When will we grow up? These evil people even carried their children along meaning they will see it as normal when they become adult. It’s must unfortunate. Ejima and all her accumplish must face the full wroght of the law.

    Oh’ my homeland Nigeria, when will you be free from all these wahala!!!

    This is disgusting and unbelieavable!!! How can a correct and normal human being support kidnappers and killers? The world is indeed coming to an end. Please take a minute and think if it should have been your sister or relative. Even if she is white, she is still a human being created by God. May God have mercy on us all.

    @perculiar the bible says “the words that comes out of their mouth dictates who they are.” It shows clealy that you don’t know the definition of democracy, because you can’t distinguish the difference between democracy and freedom of speech. You shouldn’t just open your mouth and be jamblatalk anyhow. I’m sure you’re not working around with your brain underneath your feets. Think about the woman that is killed if she is your wife oops forgot you don’t have a woman in your life let alone married. Suppose she’s your brother’s wife, sister or family friend. Irrespective of her color, nationality or background, must she be killed senselessly? she is human like you and I. Please don’t talk like that anymore men peace.

    Yes u re right perculiar in ur assertions as to how Nigers re being treated out there but behold u dint use diplomacy in ur written words contribution dats y u have alot of crticsms. Neva d less,u shuld knw dat its a condemnable act 4dose blood fested humans 2take an innocent life just lyk dat coz of selfish intrest. No wonder d Abians frm oda parts neva wanted any Ngwas 2b dia governor. Weda its obi ngwa o,osisioma ngwa, aba ngwa or wicheva ngwas in Abia coz of dia bad blooded xters. True dey are calibans as comented by a felow on dis forum and stil exists til moro. I ffeel empathetic for d famly of d deceased coz its really heart down trodden.
    May God c us tru in dis God forsaken country. Indeed d spirit of God iss not with dis country again due largely to out atrocities of d highest level.

    It’s not neccessary 2 lay blames on d president, let us be specific abt d fact, d incident occured in Abia State, nd dis kidnapping has been very ranpant in dis State, D state governor concernd shld set a special security at Ngwa, bcos 4rm origin we undrstnd dat dos pple r excesivly wicked, nd they r d one polishn dis state wit an evil name. Bt as far as our Country name is mentioned, both d concernd nd non-concernd hv takn part on d murdering act, let us pray 2 God 4 4givenes…

    We are coming. Say your prayer. We will get these girls back. The dark side of Islam keeps rearing its ugly head. Exposing the sinful. Illegal. Depraved “religion ” it is.
