A cousin to President Goodluck Jonathan, Chief Inengite Nitabai has been kidnapped, and N500million is being demanded for his release.
The family members, who cannot come up with the money on their own, lamented to news sources that they couldn’t come up with the money on their own.
“The amount the kidnappers are demanding is too high. Where do they expect us to raise such money?”, one of the children said.
“I am appealing to them to release our father. He is a good man; a God-fearing individual and symbol of peace in Otuoke and its environs.”
The child, who didn’t want to be mentioned, said they had threatened to kill their father if the money wasn’t provided on time.
