On June 12, the kidnappers called his wife and made a demand for N30Million or else they will send his lifeless body to the family.
Ever since then, they have subjected the Retired Police Officer to sever torture and inhuman treatment, according to a source.
“They call his family members each day and keep issuing threats that if the demand is not made, they would kill him in less than 48 hours. Please good Samaritans should please come to the aid of the family. The family is worried and trying to see what they can do as the 48 hours has elapsed and they are yet to meet the kidnappers demand, a family source was quoted.
“Although the matter has been reported to the Police Division within which the ugly incidence occurred, it behooves on the Police to fish out the perpetrators of this dastardly act
“This gives credence to the insecurity problem in the country if a high ranking Police Officer can be kidnapped.
