Star actor Kalu Ikeagwu was kidnapped at gunpoint at about 3:40pm on Monday, September 26, 2016.
The actor was held at the front of his residence at 18, Gbagba Crescent, Ogba, Lagos. As at the time of our arrival at his residence at 4pm, sympathizers were seen around the street narrating the ugly incident.
Eye witnesses who spoke with encomium.ng under the condition of anonymity said, “I can’t still believe my eyes. What we noticed was a jeep parked at the front of his house with four men inside the jeep. He wasn’t at home before the jeep was parked, so we didn’t suspect anything. One of the men in the jeep was parading the front of his building back a bag.
“At first, I thought they were waiting for someone not until Kalu drove in and parked in the front of his house to open the gate when those in the jeep attacked him. All I could hear from where I was standing was, ‘Get in the jeep before I hit you’.
“He tried to run but he was held and bundled in the jeep. Before I knew what was happening, they were gone. They took him away in the jeep leaving behind his own car.”
The actor who got married two months ago was said to have returned from abroad and sympthaizers in the area confirmed to encomium.ng that his family was inside as the time of his kidnap but they were helpless. His wife wept bitterly.
Encomium.ng gathered that neighbours and his wife are on their way to inform security agencies.
