Kidnappers Kill Abducted Man After Collecting N10m Ransom + His Co-Workers Also Part Of The Kidnap Team

The police have arrested seven suspects who allegedly kidnapped and murdered a 64-year-old man, Mr Ubani Onyema, after collecting N10 million ransom. Abba Kyari, Team Commander, Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT), confirmed the arrest on Wednesday in Lagos. 

Kyari, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, said the victim, a production manager in Niger Delta Petroleum Resources Ltd., was kidnapped by gunmen in Woji area of Port Harcourt on Oct. 16.

He said that a ransom call was made to the hostage’s company demanding N100 million. Eventually, the ransom was negotiated down to N10 million, which was paid to the kidnappers despite not getting a proof of life.

IRT operatives deployed to Port Harcourt by IGP Ibrahim Idris swung into action as the hostage was not released after the ransom was paid as negotiated and agreed. Unrelenting follow up by the IRT eventually led to the arrest of seven of the kidnappers. Suspects confessed to various roles each played in the kidnap.

They admitted that the victim died on the very day of his kidnap as a result of gunshot wounds he sustained during the incident. They still went ahead to collect a ransom of N10 million. He said that the arrested suspects, including the gang leader, allegedly confessed to the crime.

According to him, the gang leader organised the kidnap and recruited the hostage keepers who brought the two cars used while his deputy purchased the pre-registered SIM used in negotiating and picking up the ransom.

Among the kidnap masterminds were three men who worked in the same company with the victim and a cultist who provided the arms. Items recovered from the gang include one AK-47 rifle and two vehicles used in the kidnap.

Effort is ongoing to arrest other fleeing gang members, recover arms and the body of the victim which they confessed to have dumped into a river,” Kyari said.

  1. This is sad.... The heart of men is though.
    Who or what do we blame here? The government or greed?

    May the soul of the deceased rest in peace.

  2. this is so sad, why kill him after collecting the ransom. Yoruba adage says "bi iku ile o pani, ti ode o le paniyan".....
    truly, its the enemies within that open the other to external enemies. RIP to the man

    1. Oga did you even bother to read the post at all?

  3. OMG. RIP Ubani. Thank God even in death you are victorious because the idiots have been caught

  4. Why kill him after collecting ransom?
    Can the death penalty be placed on kidnappers already? They are wicked set of animals..
    One should be watchful of the people we put around us as staff.... but then, can we be careful enough? God save us

  5. So sad!!!

    The heart of Men are desperately wicked.
    Trust no man or woman

    May his soul rest in Peace

  6. And someone would say death penalty is harsh...

  7. You killed someone and you still have the mind to collect 10million from his family.

    Such wickedness!

  8. Nawa oo after collecting random still... 😱😨. May his soul rest in peace.

  9. What a sad story, thank God those daredevils are in police net now.
    Immediately I read the caption, I knew the man must have been dead even before the ransom was paid. May his soul rest in peace and may God give his family the fortitude to bear the loss.

  10. The wicked shall not go unpunished

  11. Dear Stella, i'm in shock as I write this. One of the gang members graduated from my school. He's married and with a kid. I really don't understand what led him to do such a thing.
    Some people are evil and one has to be very careful with human beings, even so called friends.

  12. RIP,SIR.You are instrumental to my parent's success in PH.My dad has been so ill since he heard of your demise.
