Apprehension in Imo State as Abductors Refuse to Release Businessman Even After Paying N1.5m Ransom

Published

on

Family and friends of an Imo State businessman have been left totally disheartened after abductors held on to the man even after a ransom was paid.
The abductors of Paul Kpaduwa, a businessman, based in Anara in the Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State had yet to release him after his family reportedly paid N1.5m as ransom to them.
According to Punch Metro, it was learnt that Kpaduwa, was kidnapped around 9:30 pm on Saturday in his house in Umudo village in Anara community upon his return from the day’s work.
A family source who pleaded anonymity told our correspondent on Thursday that the businessman was whisked away in his car by his abductors who laid an ambush at his gate.
“we only saw his footwear, meaning that he must have struggled with them before they took him away in his Camry (tinny light). His rooms were equally ransacked, where valuables were taken. We met the gate and doors to the rooms wide open, “ The family source told our correspondent.
He said that the kidnappers later established contact with them and they were able to speak with their brother.
He said on Monday, as instructed by Kpaduwa, N1.5m was withdrawn from his bank accounts and given to the abductors at Orodo in the Mbaitoli LGA of the state.
“They contacted us on Monday and we were able to speak to our brother through his mobile phone. Paul, instructed us to withdraw all the monies in his account so that he can regain his freedom. N1.5M was withdrawn from his two accounts and taken to the kidnappers in Orodo in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State.”
The family source, therefore, expressed worry that since the ransom was paid, they had yet to hear from the abductors or speak with their brother.
On  April 3, 2017, Paul’s cousin, Ben Kpaduwa was kidnapped at his place of work in Anara.
He spent several days in the forest before he was rescued by the police after a gun battle with the kidnappers. One of the abductors reportedly died in the gun duel
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Andrew Enwerem, said that the CP had ordered the victims rescue unhurt within the next 24 hours.
Enwerem, said that the police were working closely with the family to ensure that he was reunited with them as quickly as possible.

Celebrity barman, Cubana Chiefpriest has disclosed that the current situation in Nigeria can only get worst.

His comment follows the economic state of the country, coupled with corrupt activities of politicians in the country.

 

 

The self-acclaimed celebrity barman shared his thoughts about the ongoing nationwide looting on his Instagram page.

He expressed his concerns over the belief people have in a government who according to him, can not provide basic amenities for its citizens like good roads and proper health care.

Cubana also spoke about the rise in the price of a bag of rice in Nigeria which is ten times over the price for a bag of cement.

The summary of his post is a stirring of hopelessness and uncertainty over a government who allegedly refused to distribute palliatives to its citizens in a time of need. He also hammered on the fact that people should not expect much from a government who refused to give its citizens what is rightfully theirs.

Read the post below:

“So Funny How We Are Expecting Light, Good Roads, Health Care, Security, Education, Development, Empowerment Etc From People That Refused To Give Us Common Noodles To Eat. As Of Today Cement Na 4,000 Rice Na 38,000 We Are Finished, Sometimes I Wonder If God Dey For Real Because How Can God Comfortably Watch These Oppressors Oppress Us. This Country Na Wah !!!!

During an interview with GoldMyneTV, Seyi was asked if the youths engaging in cyber-crime are influenced by politicians who indulge in the looting of public funds.

Read his words below;

”This thing is long and deep. I don’t stand for the yahoo-yahoo thing. But do you know that yahoo is the reason we don’t have really high amount of cultism?

And this is just my perspective ‘cause when I was in university, I was always harassed by cultists. But then the next thing, there was a flow of yahoo and they all just disappeared.

People that used to slap and want to obtain would now rather give. It is something bad, so overtime we abused it.

Leaders who are supposed to make us see bad in it are doing worse things, stealing more money, and getting away with it. So yahoo boys are like, ‘if he can steal and get away, why can’t I? And I’m not even stealing from Nigeria’.”
