According to Mr Udemezue, Madubuko was at APGA secretariat Awka on January 13. “We were told he was at APGA secretariat to see one of the party executives. ”
He, however, confirmed that he left the party secretariat before the kidnappers blocked and took him away in a gusto style.
“He was last seen at the APGA office, it was when he left the party secretariat that he was said to have been kidnapped by men dressed in a camouflage.”
His younger brother said that his brother drove himself that day and that he was not with anyone at the time of the abduction.
When asked why they didn’t report to police since January 13th, when the incident took place, Mr Chinedu Madubuko said he was not aware until yesterday when he got a call that his brother had been kidnapped.
“I spoke with him on that day and we were supposed to meet today. When I called his driver, he said he was at the village that he didn’t go with him to Awka.”
