Suspected kidnappers have killed a staff of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, Mr. Ngor, in Barkin Ladi, Plateau state after collecting N200, 000 ransom from his family members.

According to reports, the suspected kidnappers trailed late Ngor to his home at the Yakubu Gowon Airport staff quarters in Barkin Ladi in Plateau state last Friday, July 31. The suspected kidnappers forced their way into his apartment, shooting sporadically into the air to ward off anyone who might want to come to rescue him.

After they whisked him away to their hideout, the kidnappers made their first contact with members of his family, demanding the sum of Ten Million Naira but after the family members negotiated, they agreed to collect Two Hundred Thousand Naira as ransom. The family members dropped off the money at the agreed point in exchange for his safe return. The relatives then went to the place where the kidnappers said they would drop off Mr. Ngor. Sadly, it was his corpse they met.

His wife who spoke on how the incident happened, said

We were in the house when unknown gunmen came in. They knocked the door and we opened. We decided to run away through the back door but they came after us. As I was trying to drag him, they hit me with their gun and then carried my husband away”

The state police command says it is investigating the matter and would ensure the culprits are arrested and brought to book.
