A bank manager, whose full identity could not be ascertained, was abducted at Umuaka in Orlu Local Government Area (LGA) of Imo State by gunmen according to a source from the area.

The source revealed that the said bank manager was abducted on Tuesday morning, as he was about to resume work.

His abductors were said to have scared the inhabitants of the area by shooting sporadically in the air before escaping with their victim.

Daily Sun gathered that a police station recently attacked by hoodlums was just a stone throw away from the bank.

As at the time of this report, the abductors were yet to make any contact with the victim’s family members, the source said.

When the State police spokesperson, Mike Abattam, was contacted, he said he was not aware of the incident as he was far away in Lagos State for a workshop, but promised to find out.
