Family sources who spoke to our Correspondent in Uyo on Thursday said that the abductors used the Apostle’s phone number to communicate with the family so they can raise money. 
The family source who pleaded anonymity added the abductors initially demanded N100m but when the family could not raised the amount they brought it down to N30m . 
” In the morning today, the man of God called us and asked that his abductors are now looking for N30m   We don’t have such money.  We are still begging them, ” he said 
However, some elders in the church have requested members to stop all social media postings to help security agencies in intelligence  gathering on the abduction of the man of God.
