Two of whom were dressed in the uniform of the Nigerian Army and a third dressed in mufti, arrived at Ezeh's residence at about 12 pm on Saturday.
On their arrival, one of the suspected kidnappers reportedly went straight into his room to drag him out in an attempt to push him into the car and drive off.
“They arrived here around 12 pm on Saturday, and I saw the two men dressed in military uniform enter the compound, so I went to call on other male neighbours in the area because I thought they were soldiers who came to beat up the guy. I was surprised when we later discovered that they’re not soldiers but hoodlums.” a resident who simply identified as Kingsley said.
