It is unclear if the families of the three other men who were abducted have also been contacted by the abductors.
However, Jane, who spoke to journalists amid tears in Port Harcourt said her family is lost on how to raise the money. She appealed to the Rivers state government to liase with security operatives to ensure the release of her father and the others unhurt.
“This morning they called and said they were beating up my dad. They demanded for N10 million. I don’t know what to do. We don’t have anything. I’m begging the government and people of goodwill. They are torturing my dad”.
