Kidnapped NIPR Chairman Released From Kidnappers Den After 10 Days Torture


The Abia state chairman of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR),Felix Olunkwa has been released by his abductors after spending ten days in captivity.

Olunkwa regained his freedom after his family and friends allegedly rallied around to pay four million Naira to his abductors.

Narrating the tale of his ordeal said he was flagged down by men on Police uniform before 8.30pm  after Arongwa junction on his way from Aba.

Details of Olunkwa’s freedom and where he has been hospitalized have not been made known by his family.

Getting down from the vehicle on instruction to open the booth led to their shouting that saw over ten men jump out from the bush and the tortures till he came were unexplainable.

It will be recalled that Olunkwa was kidnapped on May 24, 2024, while driving home from Alaoji Aba, where he had gone to repair his uncle’s car.

The kidnappers initially demanded a ransom of N200 million, but negotiations led to a reduction to N4 million, which was paid on Wednesday night, leading to Olunkwa’s release.

Olunkwa’s safe return has brought respite to his family and colleagues, ending his 10-day ordeal in the hands of his abductors.
