Police in Anambra State have discovered the decomposed body of one Pa James Iloenyosi, in the bush. The man, aged 80, was kidnapped by some unknown gunmen in the state on November 25, 2013, three days before his birthday celebration.
Aproko247 learnt that his children were preparing a grand birthday party for the deceased before the kidnappers abducted him.
Pa Iloenyosi is the father of former Super Eagles fringe player, Chikelue, who was once married to Nollywood actress, Stephanie Okereke-Linus, before she married her present husband, Idahosa Linus, in 2012 in France.
Addressing journalists on Friday in Akwa, the Anambra State capital, the Commissioner of Police, Usman Gwary, disclosed that four suspects have been nabbed in connection with the act. He added that more would be arrested by the police.
This magazine learnt that the rotting corpse of Pa Iloenyosi was found in a bush at Nneyi village in Umueri community of Anambra State. His body was identified by his children by the cloth and cap he was wearing before he was kidnapped last year.
Aproko247 also gathered that the deceased’s children had already paid the sum of N1.5 million to the abductors, but the kidnappers claimed it was not enough. It was further learnt that the old man died in the kidnappers’ den and his body dumped in the bush afterwards.
