Abduction: Jude Oguejiofor’s Dad Collapses, Dies Upon Hearing Of Son’s Killing

Barely a week after unknown gunmen kidnapped a prominent lawyer, Jude Oguejiofor in Anambra, his aged father has also died from trauma over his son’s demise.

Family sources said Oguejiofor’s father was in stable health condition until last Saturday when he collapsed and died suddenly shortly after receiving the devastating news that his son had been murdered by the kidnappers.

“The man was healthy while his son was in captivity but the trauma from Jude’s abduction proved too much for him to bear after we were informed of his death,” a family member noted.

The kidnappers had initially abducted Jude alongside his medical doctor brother while they were visiting their parents in Orsumogu community of Anambra state. His brother was released while Jude was held and later killed.

“The gunmen later released his brother and kept him on the allegation that he had been writing petitions to the Anambra State government about their activities,” another source who pleaded for anonymity said.

They, however, promised that he would be released as soon as they complete their investigations.

Adding: “They later contacted the family and told them to forget about the legal practitioner as he had been k!lled.”

Oguejiofor, father of the victim, could not recover from the shock over his son’s kidnapping incident which ended with his murder, resulting in his eventual death.

The Oguejiofor family and Orsumogu community are currently mourning the double tragedy and loss.
