The abductors of the kidnapped paramount ruler of Mhiship Nation in Pankshin Local Council of Plateau State, on Wednesday night, His Royal Highness Sunday Dajep, had contacted the monarch’s family, demanding N18m from them for the victim to be released.
This was disclosed by the family while speaking with The Guardian.
The family’s spokesman, who preferred to remain anonymous, said they had a family meeting on what they could afford, preparing for the kidnappers’ call again.
Family source told journalists earlier that gunshots were heard at the palace around 11.pm where he was abducted.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the State Police Command, DSP Alfred Alabo, confirmed the incident.
He said investigation into the unfortunate incident was ongoing to ensure that the “traditional ruler is rescued unhurt and the culprits arrested and prosecuted according to the law of the land.”
Then, there has been no communication between the abductors and the family pertaining to ransom.
