Husband to one of the victim, Mr Elupo Eliazer, said that the kidnappers have made contact with the family with their demands, “They called to demand first for 30 million but later reduced it to N2.6 million after negotiation.

“My wife and I were traveling to attend our church convention scheduled for Lokoja, but I decided to follow a different vehicle as the Toyota bus could not contain all of us; else I would have been in the car with her”.

Eliazer, who is a Person With Disability said that the vehicle his wife traveling in was ahead of the one he was in but all the occupants of the Bus were already marched in to the bush before the time his own vehicle got to the spot.”

He said the kidnappers had warned them not to inform or involve the police.

However, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP William Aya when contacted promised to find out and get back with the details later. He is however yet to do so as at the time of filing this report.
