Kidnappers demand N50m to free Gov Uduaghan's Cousin

Kidnappers of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s cousin, Pa Sam Uduaghan, yesterday made their demand known. They wanted the concerned  relations to pay N50 million as ransom if the hostage, who is in his seventies is to breathe the air of liberty again. 

Pa Uduaghan was kidnapped on Wednesday morning in Asaba. He was forced into his Toyota Camry Car at the gate of his house on DLA Road by gunmen who stormed the house in a  Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV)  without a registration number. He was said to have driven out of the house, alighted from his car to lock the gate when the hoodlums swooped on him. 

At the time of his kidnap, the acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar was on official visit to the Delta State Police Command.  Spokesman of the command, DSP Charles Muka who confirmed the abduction of Pa Uduaghan yesterday, said the command had spread out its dragnets with a view to tracking down the hoodlums. 

Emphasizing that police officers were already on the trail of the kidnappers, Muka assured that the septuagenarian, patriarch of Uduaghan’s household would be freed unhurt from the hands of his abductors. 

While urging the family not to rush in payment of the ransom, he called on members of the public to avail the command with information that would assist the police in dealing with criminals in the state.
