They first asked for N40 million. I pleaded with them, telling them we were orphans and had nothing. Thus, they advised us to bring N5 million. My brother is unemployed since he recently completed his National Youth Service Corps program.

“I’m worn out and stressed out. I’m at a loss on what to do. Even though many have committed, we have not received any money, therefore we are still looking for donations, she added.

When PUNCH Metro reached Josephine Adeh, the spokesperson for the FCT Police, she acknowledged that the event had occurred but sidestepped our correspondent’s question on the status of the police command’s investigation.

While reaffirming its unwavering commitment to bolstering security measures in response to the concern of kidnapping incidents in the Federal Capital Territory, the FCT Police Command has implemented stringent measures to thwart any attempt at kidnapping before, during, or after the Yuletide seasons.

“We are unwavering in our resolve to stop any possible threats and uphold the peace and security of the Federal Capital Territory, even as your safety continues to be our first concern.

Adeh stated, “In order to support these initiatives, citizens are expected to demonstrate unwavering cooperation with law enforcement agencies, acting patriotically to enhance overall security.”
