A man who was suspected to be a kidnapper and was almost lynched by an angry mob, has been saved by Prince Eze Madumere, the Deputy Governor of Imo State, when his convoy spotted the suspect in the high browse area of Asokoro in Abuja on Wednesday evening.
According to reports, while stepping out from his vehicle, the deputy governor quickly intervened with his aides suspected to be secret agents. The suspect was already receiving punches, kicks, slaps and reaching for all manner of weapons to be tried on him.
Madumere reportedly said to the mob: "I am the Deputy Governor of Imo State, please do not beat him again."
Surprised by this charge, there was a spontaneous retreat. Prince Madumere then accused the suspect of having done something heinous and that if it were not so, he would not have been driving dangerously while he was being hot chased.
He quickly reached out for the nearest police officers who yielded to take him to Asokoro police station.
In a bid to ensure that the right things were done, Imo Deputy Governor reportedly joined them to the police station where the suspect who identified his name as Victor Ndubuisi was formally handed over.
Speaking to the DPO, Imo Deputy Governor said: "I do not think the young man is too clean by the contradictions in his statement. I had thought he was even a kidnapper. I believe without intervention as this, the angry youth were ready to kill him. I blame him. He should not have run if it were a mere case of mis understanding.
"He could have as well died for a mere sundry matter. All I plead is for you to do is to investigate the the matter by going back to the place where the incident took place. If it is an issue that could be handled, resolve it and let him go. Please try to get back to me."
He reached for his complimentary cards and handed them to the DPO and two other senior police officers.
