Kidnappers

Some heavily armed men, who are said to be kidnappers have allegedly killed a man identified as Johnbull Osagiede after collecting a ransom of N9 million from the victim’s family in Edo State.

It was gathered that the incident happened at Evbohen quarters in Idumebo community in Orhionmwon Local Government Area of the State.

It was gathered that the armed men invaded the community last Tuesday, abducted the deceased and took him to an unknown destination.

A family source said the kidnappers had made contact with the wife of the deceased and demanded a N15 million ransom.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the family initially paid N3 million to the kidnappers and later N6 million, bringing the total amount paid to N9 million.

He said the ransom was paid to the kidnappers at designated locations.

He, however, wondered why the kidnappers killed him after collecting the ransom.

“Johnbull Osagiede’s dead body was found by the community vigilante, who discovered the corpse dumped at Pipeline Road near Iguelaba community in the locality,”
he said.

He said the incident had been reported to the Ugo Police Division by the community.

When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the Edo State Police Command, Chidi Nwabuzor, said the command was yet to be briefed on the incident.

According to him, the command would only be aware if the incident was reported to it.
