They killed 20 people in my presence – Akwa Okuko recounts ordeal in kidnappers den

The released kidnapped Anambra State native doctor, Chidozie Nwangwu, has revealed that those who abducted him had links to the infamous sit-at-home enforcers.

Nwangwu, popularly known as Akwa Okuko Tiwaraki, was kidnapped on Sunday at his new hotel, Triple P Hotel in Oba, Idemili North Local Government Area of the state, and was released in the early hours of Saturday after ransom payment.

Sharing his experience in the hand of the hoodlums with his friends and well-wishers, on Saturday, Akwa Okuko said that if he had escaped the abduction, the kidnappers would have killed more people and kidnapped more guests in the Hotel.

The popular social media native doctor who had boasted of having numerous powers, claimed that his abductors want to kidnap 50 wealthy Anambrarians. He added that his kidnappers killed no fewer than 20 people in his presence.

“Let me tell you all what happened. While I was in the kidnappers’ den, I listened to the radio and saw how people were speaking all kinds of rubbish, so I decided to set the record straight,” Daily Post quoted him to have said.

“What happened was that I was there (at home) that day, at around 11:30, when someone named Okey Japan called me and said they were at my hotel, and that they were spending money, and had spent close to N300,000, and that they would have wanted me to be around.

“I obliged them and drove to the hotel all by myself, in my new car. No one came with me. I was there, and not up to 30 minutes, gunshot rented the air. People started running helter-skelter. I now went out to see what happening, and the people started shooting at me.

“They killed two of my security men. I don’t want to reveal much now, but I know that only two things can only save a man. If your charms do not save you, your money will save you.

“Anyone who has charms should have money. So the people took me into their car. If I wanted to run away, I would have run away, but I have seen those that were shot and I said if I leave, they will kill many people. A lot of people were lying down, and if I wanted to leave, they would have killed many.

“The story too would have been that the whole thing started when I came in, meaning that I was the one who brought in kidnappers. I decided to follow them to show that my hands were clean. What I did was to save many souls. If you think they took me because I ate people’s money, let me tell you I did not. If I eat your money, come to me I will give you money because I have money.

“People may be rejoicing that it happened to me but let me tell you, if the death that killed the rich, encounters the poor, it will crush him.

“This whole thing is related to these sit-at-home people, and they mentioned names of more people they will take, but it’s not something I can say now. They killed many in front of me. They killed up to 20 people before me. I did not take anyone’s money, they just came to kidnap and their target is people who have money. They wanted to kidnap as many as 50 people from my hotel that day, but I rather followed them,” he narrated.
