The commissioner for public utilities in Anambra State, Engr Emeka Ezenwanne who was kidnapped on Wednesday night has regained his freedom, reports claim.


Ezenwanne was kidnapped by gunmen who invaded the venue of an interactive session between an All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship aspirant, Prof Chukwuma Soludo and youths of his community, Isuofia.


Three policemen were reportedly killed in the attack, and they made away with the commissioner who had scaled the fence in an attempt to escape but ran into the gunmen.


“I just spoke to the commissioner now. He has been freed, and he is in good health too.


“He denied paying any ransom, and also told me that his abductors did not maltreat him in anyway.” It was claimed.


The Hon. Commissioner for Public Utilities in Anambra State, who is among the youngest commissioners in the State, was released at about 1am on Easter day, according to the report.


Meanwhile, the former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) escaped the attack unharmed.
