Anglican Church Scribe Wife; Abductors Demand N20M Ransom


The abductors of the wife of the General Secretary of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Venerable Ayodeji Fagbemi,  Ebunoluwa had contacted the family, demanding for a sum of N20 million for her release.
Mrs. Fagbemi was abducted by some armed men who invaded her residence at Oba-Ile, Akure in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State on Monday night.
According to the police, the armed hoodlums gained entrance into the Fagbemi’s house through the window after which they took the woman away with her Toyota Jeep to an unknown destination.
The husband of the victim, Venerable Fagbemi while speaking with our correspondent said the abductors had contacted the family and demanded for N20 million ransom. He however declared that the family had no such money.
A former Provost of Bishop Vining College of Theology said, “Everybody is traumatised and we are all praying for her safe return to us. Again there is a very outrageous expectation, the abductors demanded for N20 million which I don’t think anybody can afford. But at the movement we are really praying.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Femi Joseph said the command had commenced investigation on the after, adding that search for the abductee had also begun.
He said, “Our men have already began the search for the women, but you know we can’t disclosed the method we are using to the media now but we shall surely ensure that the victim would be released unhurt”.
