The victim’s sister, who is based in Lagos, told journalists on Friday that the kidnappers had made contacts with his family and demanded N10 million ransom for his release.
The journalist’s wife, Oluchi, also confirmed that the kidnappers have made demands.
The woman, however, said she was not at liberty to discuss the details as the negotiations are being handled by the family.
