Less than 24 hours after Professor Onje Gye Wado, the former Deputy Governor of Nasarawa State was kidnapped, his abductors have placed a N70 million ransom for his release.
A family source who is keeping track of the situation said that the kidnappers called for the first time since the abduction of professor Onje Gye Wado and demanded N70 million ransom from his family
It would be recalled that Professor Onje Gye-Wado was kidnapped Thursday night in Rinz village of Wamba local government area by unknown gunmen.
The source said, “the kidnappers are in touch with the family of Prof and they have demanded the sum of N70 million naira, while the family has offered N2 million naira, which the abdcutors rejected.
Available information obtained by our correspondent indicated that the family is pleading with the abductors to accept the two million because they can not raise any thing more than the two million due to the public holidays declared by the federal government for the Easter celebration.
“Today Friday, till Monday, is public holiday, there is no where we can get money and we want him (Prof), back alive” the source said.
