He said that the kidnappers started to demand an additional N10million after his had made an initial payment.

“My elder brother was kidnapped right in front of our gate on Tuesday (1st September) evening around 9:00-9:30pm. The kidnappers got in contact with my dad (who is a pastor), negotiations began and they agreed to a certain amount which we paid on Friday (September 11). But still, they’ve refused to let him go,” he said.

“They are requesting for additional N10million (N10,000,000). We don’t have such amount of money. And the most scary part is that, they wouldn’t let us speak with him. My brother is a very peaceful and quiet guy.” he added.
