Ransom Reduced To N1m For INEC Official’s Wife
Abductors of the wife of Mr. Effiong Ekereke, a senior Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) official in Akwa Ibom State have reduced their ransom to N1 million.
Mrs. Ekereke, a senior nursing officer, was kidnapped on New Year day by suspected hoodlums at her home in Ikot Akpankuk, Ukanafun local government area of the state.
TheNation gathered that the kidnappers had initially demanded N10 million as ransom before they could set the woman free.
A source, who would not want his name in print, said the hoodlums have reduced the ransom to N1 million. The source said: “The reduction has to do with the fact that there is no cash to meet their earlier demand of N10million.”
