A woman identified as Mrs Chizoba Eke, who was declared missing in Rivers State, has been found, days after she was abducted.

Chizoba was recovered from a well on Thursday in an uncompleted building at Igwuruta community in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.

The mother of two, who was kidnapped from her home along with her six-month-old baby on Monday, was thrown into the well after severe beatings by her abductor.

Luck, however, ran out on the suspect when he was intercepted with his victim’s baby by a team of policemen on a ‘stop and search’ operation at Omerelu, a boundary community between Rivers and Imo States.

Chizoba’s husband, Eke Eke, confirmed his wife’s abduction and rescue to Noble Reporters Media on Friday.

He disclosed that he was invited by the police to come to identify the baby, having lodged a complaint about his missing wife and baby.

According to Eke who hails from Imo State, the suspect is known to him in the area as Mr Chinedu and had attempted to rape his wife when she was pregnant.

Chizoba, who was in pain due to the head injuries she sustained, also narrated her ordeal to Media (known to Noble Reporters Media).

She explained that the suspect came to her house, claiming that her husband wanted her to come to Chinedu’s house to collect some money.
