SAN FRANCISCO, Dec 12, (THEWILL) – The soldiers drafted to Abia State to halt the kidnappings in the state on Sunday scored a major victory with the killing of the state’s most notorious kidnapper, Mr. Obioma Nwankwo, nicknamed Osisikankwu.

The criminal was killed at Ugwuati Evil Forest when his gang engaged security forces in a gunfight according to Army spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Sagir Musa.

Osisikankwu and his gang of kidnappers had terrorized Abia residents before the Federal Government deployed troops to quell their activities.

He and members of his gang had been in hiding since the troops arrived in the state in September after the kidnap of journalists.
