Abuja resident killed after getting N23m ransom
A woman from Abuja named Olayinka Ogunyemi was allegedly killed by thieves after they were paid a N23m ransom. 

According to Daily Trust, the person who died was one of seven people who were taken from the Kuduru village in the federal capital territory (FCT). He was killed because the families of the hostages did not pay the N290 million that was requested.

A source told the news outlet that the thieves called on Friday, February 23, to tell people that the civil engineer had been killed.

According to the source

The bandits called us yesterday that they have killed engineer Olayinka Ogunyemi. The bandits threatened to kill the remaining captives if N230 million is not made available as ransom. Those still in captivity include one and half year-old boy, two siblings, a pregnant woman and two men.

“N23 million has been paid, food sent and other items they demanded but none of our people has been released. We are appealing to the federal government, the police and the army to step up efforts to rescue our people because their abductors said Nigeria has offended them and they would retaliate.
