How A 14-Year-Old Schoolgirl Was Kidnapped And R*ped For 27 Days In Anambra

The mother of a 14-year-old schoolgirl who was allegedly abducted by a three-man kidnap syndicate recently, Mrs Ukamaka Onyechi, was terribly alarmed when she got a call from her daughter’s guardian in school decrying her absence several days after school had resumed.

The sender made it clear to her that the ransom must be paid to them if she would see her daughter a...
