Abductors of Lukman Ibrahim whose pregnant wife was killed on Saturday during a kidnap operation by suspected gunmen have reached out to the family, demanding N30m ransom.
A very close family source who confirmed the development to Daily Trust on Monday in Ilorin said the family had only been able to raise N2m since the demand was made.

“They insisted that it must be N30m or nothing. But we have continued to plead with them while running around to see what we can source because we are talking about somebody’s life here.
“We have already lost one, a pregnant wife for that matter, Hawa who was hit by their stray bullet when the abductors were shooting randomly during the operation,” he added.
Ibrahim, a phone and accessories dealer in Owode Market, Offa, Kwara State, was kidnapped along Ojoku road less than two minutes drive to the Divisional Police Headquarters while driving his father-in-law, the late pregnant wife and one of their children home.
