Ozekhome: Kidnappers Slash Ransom To N100m From N150m

mike ozekhomeThe abductors of renowned human rights lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) and a chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, Athanasius Ugbome, about a fortnight ago, have reduced their ransom to N100 million and N40 million respectively.

The kidnappers had earlier demanded N150 million as ransom for Ozekhome and N100 million for Ugbome.

Mr. Ozekhome was abducted alongside his driver by gunmen at the Ehor end of the Benin-Auchi expressway on Friday, August 23, and an attempt to rescue him by policemen, who swiftly responded to a distress call led to the death of four police officers with the hoodlums escaping with gunshot wounds.
