Abductors of Isaac Ekpa, former chairman of Olamaboro Council, Kogi State, are demanding N25 million before his release. But the victim’s family was reportedly negotiating for N1 million.

Gunmen had abducted the former chairman around Ochadamu in Ofu Council of the state while on his way to his hometown last Friday. The Guardian gathered that Ekpa was preparing for his father’s burial before the sad event took place.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of Kogi State, DSP Williams Ayah, confirmed the abduction, saying a patrol team attached to the Ofu area discovered an abandoned car along the road in Ochadamu.

According to him, on close scrutiny, they found an abandoned identity card in the vehicle bearing the name of Emmanuel Isaac Ekpa, apparently indicating he was kidnapped.
