The police in Enugu on Monday rescued Pa Michael Obi, the father of Super Eagles Captain, Mikel Obi, from kidnappers.

It was gathered that Pa Obi and his driver, one Ishaya John, were rescued unhurt from the hideout of the kidnappers at Egede Udi forest of Enugu State along old Egede-Affa Road, Enugu.

Pa Obi and his driver were kidnapped last Friday along Makurdi-Enugu Road on his way from Jos in his grey colored Toyota Prado jeep with registration number MUS 604CG and taken to unknown destination through the thick forest part of the area.

They were, however, rescued by men of the 9th Mile Division of Enugu State Police Command on Monday about 2.30pm.

Ebere Amaraizu, the spokesman of Enugu State Police Command, confirmed the release of Mikel Obi’s father and his driver.

Amaraizu, a Superintendent of Police, said they were rescued hale and hearty.

He said Pa Michael Obi and the driver have rejoined their families.

Amaraizu stated further: “It was further gathered that the abductors started calling to demand a ransom of N10 million before the operatives acting on intelligence information swooped on them where a gun duel ensued which forced the hoodlums to abandon their victims inside the forest and they were promptly rescued.”

In his reaction, Pa Michael Obi extolled the response and efforts of the police which led to their rescue.

He thanked the Commissioner of Police, Danmallam Mohammed, and his operatives, insisting that he was happy with the operatives’ performance.

“I am alive and healthy. I thank the Commissioner of Police and the police operatives for their efforts which led to our rescue”, Pa Obi said.



At the office of the Commissioner of Police, a team of doctors from the police medical unit were seen conducting medical checks on Pa Michael Obi.

The doctors also confirmed that he was hale and hearty.

Meanwhile, the Enugu State Police Command has appealed to members of the public particularly hospital owners and operators to watch out for any one with injury or wound believed to be that of bullet for prompt necessary action just as a full scale investigation had commenced into the incident.

The state Commissioner of Police, Danmallam Mohammed applauded the efforts of his operatives and that of the members of the public for their timely and useful information.

Amaraizu added that Michael Obi’s Prado jeep was equally recovered from the hoodlums.
