- Abductors of the director general of the campaign organisation of the APC have demanded N200 million ransom
- The kidnappers made the demand barely two hours after they abducted their victim
- The director general was kidnapped shortly after a campaign rally at Ofosu, Edo state
A N200 million ransom has been demanded by the abductors of Monday Aighobhahi, the director general of the campaign organisation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the Ovia Federal Constituency of Edo, Dennis Idahosa.
The APC reps candidate, Idahosa, said the abductors contacted him to demand for the ransom few hours after the abduction.
Idahosa said: “Yes, they called around 9pm last night and again called early this morning insisting on payment of N200m before they would release Aighobhahi.
“I am quite aware of the sinister motive of the people behind this but they have failed; the determination to liberate Ovia is not all about Idahosa, it is the resolve of the people and they cannot kill the will of the people."
Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that Aighobahi was abducted by unknown gunmen on Tuesday, February 12.
Denis Idahosa, former council chairman of the area, said the abducted DG of his campaign organisation was at Ofosu, Ogbogui Ward to canvass for votes.
