The kidnappers of Professor Onje Gye-Wado, a former Deputy Governor of Nasarawa State, have made demands.
They demanded N70 million ransom.
A source who has been monitoring the development informed Daily Trust in Lafia, the state capital, that the abductors have finally reached out to the family.
Our correspondent had earlier reported that that Onje Gye-Wado was kidnapped Friday morning in Gwagi village of Wamba local government area.
The source added that the family members had been pleading with the kidnappers to collect N2 million instead of the N70 million that was requested because of the unavailability of cash.
He said, “The abductors have already contacted the family of Prof and they have demanded the sum of N70 million, but we are appealing that they should collect N2 million because we can not afford to raise anything more than that owing to the public holidays declared by the Federal Government for the Easter celebration.”
