I paid N3 million ransom before I was freed by kidnappers – doctor

To kidnap

Azubuike Iheanacho, the doctor who was kidnapped in the Dekina local government area of ​​Kogi state, revealed that he had to pay a ransom before the kidnappers released him.

Iheanacho, owner of the Peace Hospital located on the old Egume Road, Ayingba, was abducted from his residence in Anyigba last week on Saturday.

Journalists reported the alarm generated by the state chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), calling on security agencies to help free the doctor.

Iheanacho told reporters Saturday night that he was released on Monday after paying N3 million to the kidnappers.

“I got injured but not much. Because at the time of choosing me, I resisted. There were people nearby when it happened. They released me on Monday. We thank God for everything, “he added.

The doctor also asked the federal government and law enforcement agencies to make sure that people’s lives are insured because the kidnapping rate is becoming alarming.

Williams Aya, the police spokesman in Kogi, promised to contact reporters when he has official details of the kidnapping. However, he never spoke to this reporter again.

This document reported that no less than nine people were abducted last week as Nigeria continues to fight violent acts carried out by various armed groups and individuals.

Among the nine are Iheanacho and the wife of Olugbenga Ale, chief of staff of the Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, who was abducted in Owena at the Idanre state council.

Journalists also reported that Tofai Nanono, brother of Agriculture Minister Sabo Nanono, was kidnapped after gunmen broke into the minister’s home in Tofai village, Gabasawa local government area in Kano state.
