Gunmen who kidnapped the Special Adviser to the Governor of Nasarawa State on Local Government, Chieftaincy Affairs and Community Development, Mr. John W.  Mamman, have reduced the ransom they are demanding from N150 million to N20 million to free him.

Armed assailants gained entry to the home of the adviser in Dari, Kokona Local Government Area of the state last Saturday and seized the victim.

However, luck ran out on one of the suspected kidnappers as he was nabbed by some members of the community and handed over to the police.

A source closed to the family said the gunmen had made a demand for money and that the family is negotiating with them.

“The kidnappers earlier demanded the sum of N150 million, but later reduced it to N20 million yesterday evening,” the source said.

The source said when the kidnappers called the family, they overheard Mr Mamman crying of pains at the background.

Ramhan Nansel, the command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), also confirmed the development to journalist in Lafia.
