Kidnappers want N5M ransom for Abonema 10

PORT HARCOURT— GUNMEN, who abducted 10 community leaders in Abonema waterways, Akuku Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State on Tuesday, have requested for N5 million ransom.

The 10 persons, including a Chief identified as Benibo, were said to be returning to Abonema from neighbouring Idama after a truce meeting over leadership struggle in the community, when the abductors ensnared and whisked them to an unidentified destination.

A relative of one of the victims confirmed that communication has been established with the abductors.


The relative said: “Contact has been made. They are demanding N5 ,000,000 to free them.
Effort is already being made in some quarters to raise the money.” However, Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, told Vanguard yesterday that Police were yet to make concrete findings, but “working on some clues” in their investigations.
