Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi visits Opi to see Dr Dan Shere, former Secretary of Government kidnapped by bandits on Enugu-Opi Road.

An enthusiastic crowd of party supporters and former officials accompanied him on the visit yesterday 31 October 2022.

Dr. Shere was among the commuters abducted last week, alongside two returning students of the University of Nigeria.

The widely reported news of the abduction may have precipitated the Sunday meeting of Southeast Governors in Enugu.

All abducted persons were freed following intervention of the State government, Enugu Metro learnt.

Officials said the Governor directly intervened to effect their release from the kidnappers’ den in the deep forests of Ekwegbe.

Dr. Shere equally served briefly as special adviser to Governor Ugwuanyi in his first tenure.

Reports say deputy governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Ifeanyi Ossai, came with the governor for the visit.

The entourage proceeded from Opi to inspect the state of the Lejja-Aku road for further state government’s intervention.
