The brother, who spoke on the condition of anonymity said, “We have yet to receive any call or message from them to know what they want. When I visited the police station, I gathered that some families of other persons who were abducted have been contacted and asked to pay ₦10 million for each individual. The incident has put the family in distress, and we hope that the authorities will do something quickly to rescue the abducted persons. We are urging the police and the Federal Government to help us rescue our relatives unhurt.”
