It was just the other day we wrote aboutDr.Moses Amako’s kidnap. Thanks to the olodo Police force in Imo State and an Administration that is yet to get it together, we have the body of Dr. Amako lying cold in the mortuary after he was released from his captors.
This is how the daily sun is reporting the story:
Dr Moses Amako, the immediate past Chief Medical Director of Owerri Specialist Hospital, Umuguma in Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State who was kidnapped on December 1, but later released one week after, has reportedly died.
Dr Amako died last Saturday at about 7 pm following bullet injuries he sustained in one of his legs. The abductors shattered his leg with bullets and kept him captive for over one week.
Daily Sun reported that the late Dr Amako was released to the family last week Wednesday having paid a ransom of N 20 million. He was immediately rushed to an undisclosed hospital for medical attention.
It was gathered that more than 10 medical consultants battled to save his life but the injuries were affected by tetanus.
Confirming the report to Daily Sun yesterday, one of the younger brothers to the late Amako, Kingsley, described his death as a big loss to the community. He said that his demise has put the community in painful mood. According to him, one of the younger brothers to the late doctor collapsed on hearing the sad news and he was receiving medical attention at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Owerri. The youths are planning a peaceful demonstration to the Government House, Owerri today (Monday) over the cruel demise of Dr. Amako.
Dr Amako was kidnapped on Thursday, December 1, while going back to his hometown, Ohii, in Owerri West L.G.A in company of his wife. His widow was later released by the hoodlums after shattering his leg with bullets.
I can’t find words. While the people of Ogboko will be rejoicing with Gov.Okorocha and his family this Christmas season, the families of Dr.Amako will be mourning on the other side of town. How long will this continue? How many more cases like this does IMO STATE have to witness before we get the ball rolling on security and flush out these hoodlums that have terrorized our land? Why is our own always different ?
Jehovah where are you?
