An Enugu-based tailor who was kidnapped at Lokpanta while returning from Aba in neighbouring Abia State has been released.
 
A close source confirmed the payment of N2 million ransom by the family.
 
Simply identified as Uzoma, the tailor was kidnapped by hoodlums suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.
 
The tailor who is also a member of the Coal City Keep Fit Club was said to be returning from a business trip to Aba when the commercial bus in which they were travelling was way-layed.
 
Our source narrated how the hoodlums found it difficult to open the back door of the bus.
 
This was said to be happening at about 8:00 p.m. at the popular Lokpanta, an Hausa settlement.
 
Their plans of picking up more victims from the bus was thus scuttled and they decided to take the only passenger in the front sit of the bus which happened to be the tailor.
 
This incident happened on Thursday, after which the kidnappers later established contact with the victim's family in Enugu.
