PostSubject: Kidnappers of Amaechi’s aide demand N100m   Thu 26 Feb 2015, 6:21 am

FOUR days after the abduction of
the Deputy Chief Press Secretary to
Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers
State, Mr. Freddy Ndigbara, his
captors have asked for a N100m
ransom.
Ndigbara, who anchors Amaechi’s
programme within and outside
Government House, Port Harcourt,
was kidnapped on Sunday while
preparing for an All Progressives
Congress rally at Kaani, in the
Khana Local Government Area of
the state.
Ndigbara was said to have been
accosted and forced into a waiting
car by his captors at the APC rally
venue.
The hoodlums, according to an
eyewitness, had stormed the rally
venue in a red Toyota Highlander
SUV, made a quick search for their
target and forced him into the car.
A source in the Khana Local
Government Area told our
correspondent that Ndigbara
kidnappers swore not to release
the victim without the payment of
the N100m demanded.
The PUNCH learnt that Ndigbara’s
abductors demanded for the sum
after establishing contact with a
member of his family.
“Yes, they have established contact
with Freddie’s (Ndigbara) family
and they (kidnappers) are
demanding N100m before they will
release him. Everybody is sad that
this is happening to Freddie.
“He (Ndigbara) is a gentleman and
does not deserve what happened
to him. We are appealing to those
holding him hostage to release
him. He is not a rich man,” a source
told our correspondent in Port
Harcourt on Wednesday.
When contacted, the Police Public
Relations Officer in the state, Mr.
Ahmad Mohammad, told our
correspondent that efforts to
rescue Ndigbara were in top gear.
Mohammad said he was not aware
that the kidnappers had demanded
ransom for the victim’s release.
“Investigation and efforts toward
rescuing the kidnap victim are in
top gear. But I am not aware of any
demand for ransom by his
abductors,” the state police
spokesman said.
Governor Amaechi had alleged that
the abduction of his deputy chief
press secretary was politically
motivated.
Amaechi, who spoke through his
Chief of Staff, Mr. Tony Okocha, had
said that Ndigbara and one of the
political leaders in Kaani, Mr.
Celestine Akpobari, had been able
to convert over 5,000 members of
the Peoples Democratic Party to
the APC.
He had said, “Of course, Freddy
Ndigbara’s abduction is politically
motivated. We are aware that
Ndigbara, in league with the
Celestine Akpobari, was able to
convert over 5,000 PDP members to
APC.
“There is nothing wrong or
extraordinary in what he
(Ndigbara) did because we are in a
political setting where the in thing
now is to win political converts.
Winning new convert was what
Freddie did before he was
kidnapped.”
