Kidnappers release Bayelsa nightclub owner, abduct his wife and father-in-law who came to drop ransom
Kidnapped popular Bayelsa nightclub owner, Oyintare Ajanami, has reportedly been released but his abductors held on to his 38-year old wife and father-in-law for paying a ransom less than what was demanded.
WITHI NIGERIA had reported that Ajanami, who also works as a cash officer with a commercial bank, was at his building site to pay workers when the gunmen swooped on him and whisked him away in Yenagoa, the state capital.
According to Vanguard, 43-year-old nightclub owner was released at an exchange point in Ahaoda Local Government Area of Rivers State on Thursday.
74-year-old father-in-law and his daughter had gone to drop about N15million ransom out of the N200 million demanded by the kidnappers.
It was gathered that the ransom exchange which was kept away from the security agencies took place at about 11.45pm Thursday, however turned awry when the kidnappers insisted on the completion of the demanded N200m ransom and held unto father and daughter.
A close family source who confirmed the incident, said the family were worried over the development, adding that the wife is hypertensive and was not with her drugs at the point of abduction.
“We are however waiting to hear from the kidnappers. We learnt their Satellite Mobile Phone gadget fell into the water during the ransom exchange,” the source said.
“You know N15m was taken to the ransom exchange point. The kidnappers collected the money and maybe held unto the wife and her father in order to demand for more money from the victim. We plead with the kidnappers to tamper justice with mercy.” the source added.
