Gunmen demand N16m ransom to release 60-yr-old woman in Rivers

Unknown gunmen who abducted Nyieda Kpeenu in Nweol community, Gokana Local Government Area, Rivers State, have demanded N16m ransom for her ransom.

Kpeenu, a 60-year-old woman, was on Wednesday, abducted from her residence in the Ogoni community at about 8pm.

The gunmen shot sporadically into the air to scare residents in the area and took her off.

Narrating the development to GbaramatuVoice, her son said: “They forced the house of our mother open and took her away. It was a disturbing scene. They first called two days after the incident. They later contacted us and demanded N16m ransom.

“Where are we going to get such money from. My mother is not a politician. She is a farmer. We have reported the matter to the police, but nothing has happened. We are hoping and praying God to touch their hearts so they can release our mother unconditionally”

Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer, Rivers Command, SP Nnamdi Omoni, said the matter had not been reported to his office, promising to contact the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the area for confirmation.
