Osewu explained that the victim was kidnapped in the early hours of Saturday when he was on his way to see a friend at Okpata community in Doma LGA.

“My younger brother was kidnapped this morning when he was going to see his friend in the Okpata community. Now the kidnappers are demanding N10m and I don’t know how to get such an amount of money.

“When I spoke with the victim, he was crying and complained that his legs are swollen up because of the distance he trekked with the kidnappers into the forest,” he said.

Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ranham Nansel, when contacted, said the Command was yet to get an official report on the matter.
