The kidnappers have threatened to kill the victim if his family members fail to provide the money.
The victim’s eldest son, Menyene, who narrated the incident to journalists, said, “they (the hoodlums) called me on the phone, and the number was hidden, saying we should arrange N50 million quickly before my father could be released.
