Abductors of six year old boy demand N50 million ransome

Kidnappers have demanded a ransom of N50 million naira for a six-year-old boy abducted in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
The kidnapped is named Olali Powell. He is the son of the former chairman of Yenagoa Local Government Area and ex-Commissioner for Local Government and Community Development in Bayelsa State, Mr. Godknows Powell.
Powell was abducted on New Year’s day at the Etegwe suburb of Yenagoa by gunmen while returning from a church service with his mother.
The kidnappers established contact with the victims family over the weekend.
According to a security source, the abductors whose whereabouts were still unknown warned the victim’s family against involving security agencies in their negotiations. He said the ransom requested is N50 million.
He said: “We know the kidnappers will reduce their ransom. It is their normal practice. They always place high amount of money on their victims only to reduce it later through negotiation.”
He added that the police are working round the clock to rescue the boy.
