May 22, 2012 – Two weeks after the kidnap of Mr. Amir Drek, a Lebanese and a staff of Mother Cat, the construction company handling the Zaria Regional Water Project, the Police have yet to find him.
Mr. Aminu Lawal, the spokesman of the Police Command in Kaduna State, who disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna, said the police were still trailing the kidnappers.
Drek was seized on May 7, after the suspected kidnappers killed two other workers, Padi Ibrahim, a Lebanese and Aliyu Nuruddeen, who were on their way to the construction site.
“We are still trailing the suspects we believe were involved in the robbery and kidnapping.”
NAN recalls that the police on May 8 arrested 90 suspects in connection with the killing and kidnap, but Lawal said the suspects were still being interrogated.
“We have received some useful information on the matter,” he said.
Eyewitnesses said that the kidnappers blocked the road leading to the site and robbed passersby.
They said that the victims, on sighting the kidnappers, tried to escape but were attacked and robbed.(NAN)
