Man Petrol), he was cruising in his Toyota Camry car to his hometown, Amichi, in Nnewi South Local Government Area, with one other person, before he was abducted at about 9pm; only to be thrown out from about 20 feet high bridge top after a little while.
The video also showed the second victim lying lifeless in a drainage system, where flood pegged him against some huge pebbles in the channel.
The surviving victim, who lied lifeless on the ground, also sustained various degrees of injuries all over his body.
When contacted, the Spokesperson of the Anambra State Police Command, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, confirmed the incident and revealed that the victim had been rescued, and the body of the deceased deposited in a mortuary.
