Kogi Mourner abducted, killed after #5m Ransom
Mr Ojonimi Ossai, a senior staff of Shell Petroleum Development Company, who was on his way to attend burial ceremony of his father in law was abducted and killed.
The incidence happened over the weekend along Itobe Ajegwu road when hoodlums who might have allegedly been laying siege of him, identified him in a jalopy vehicle he was traveling in, abducted him into the bush, collected five million naira and still kill him.
Ossai who has put in 23 years in the service of the company met his untimely death on his way to the burial ceremony of his father in-law at Igalamela-Odolu Local Government Area of Kogi state.
A source from the family said a ransom of N5 million naira was delivered to his abductors but unfortunately, his corpse was picked from the bush in the early morning of Tuesday.
“He came home in a jalopy car to disguise himself from kidnappers. Yet, he ran into them at Itobe-Anyigba Road.
“We picked his corpse this early morning from the bush,” Daily Trust quoted a family source as saying.
When contacted, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, William Aya, said the command was yet to get the details of the incident.
Recalled that last year, a Saudi Arabia-based oil magnate, Ogacheko Atanu, who was on holiday at Idah, was shot dead by hoodlums.
