Pmnews.ng reports that the abduction took place on Thursday around 10:00 pm.

Adikwu, who managed to escape during the invasion at his residence on the estate, revealed that he is in direct communication with the kidnappers, who have set a specific timeframe for the payment of the ransom.

Recounting how it happened, Adikwu said, “It all happened on Thursday at about 10:00 pm when a vehicle containing those who were kidnapped drove into my compound, and then all of a sudden the kidnappers followed the vehicle into my compound.

While not disclosing the exact amount demanded, Adikwu confirmed that it exceeds N30 million.

“I was called to provide a ransom; I don’t want to mention the amount because already false information is everywhere in the media about the whole incident, but I can assure you it’s more than 30 million,” he told Vanguard.
