Police after fleeing suspects in Enugu viral video

The Enugu State Police Command has launched a manhunt for the fleeing suspects in an alleged organ harvesting viral video.

The spokesman of Enugu police, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, made this known after unraveling the actual circumstances of the viral video alleging an attempt to harvest the organs of two ladies in a hotel in the state.

“The Enugu State Police Command has intercepted a viral video showing two ladies alleged to have been rescued from a hotel room in Enugu, where they were tied up in an attempt to harvest their organs by two young men,” Ndukwe said.

“The Command, therefore, wishes to state that, contrary to the misleading narrative on the incident, preliminary investigation revealed a case of demanding money with menaces and fraud, and not murder or human organs or parts harvesting as being peddled.”

Ndukwe further revealed that the ladies, operating as commercial sex workers, made out with the young men on Wednesday, July 3, 2024 in a hotel (name withheld) along Agbani Road, Enugu.

He said both ladies had another appointment the following day, Thursday, July 4 and met the suspects in the hotel where the incident occurred.

Ndukwe explained that at the hotel, the suspects beat and tied up the girls in the toilet of the hotel room after menacingly demanding and obtaining their phones and account details, including their Personal Identification Numbers (PINs).

The police spokesman added that the suspects surreptitiously found their way out of the hotel before the victims were rescued, as seen in the video.

“They further fraudulently withdrew a cumulative sum of one hundred and twenty thousand (₦120,000.00) from the victims’ accounts,” Ndukwe said.

“Meanwhile, a bag containing two (2) kitchen knives and sportswear the suspects left behind has been recovered, while an intelligence-guided investigation to fish out and bring the fleeing suspects to book is ongoing.”

Consequently, Ndukwe advised owners and managers of hotels to exercise the highest standards of security alertness and ensure that lodgers are properly screened, and their verifiable details obtained before being accommodated.

“Moreover, young ladies have been cautioned against going out with unknown persons, particularly males, under any guise to avoid falling prey to similar criminals and their activities,” he added.
