A businessman, Osondu Nwachukwu killed by his abductors after receiving a ransom for his release

Nwachukwu’s family in an interview called for more government action at the state and federal levels in tackling the security challenges bedevilling the country. Nwachukwu, aged 55, resided in Nasarawa for over 30 years and was a sachet water seller who used his apartment for residential purpose and production point.

Nwachukwu was seized from his residence on October 30 by suspected robbers who dispossessed him of cash, valuables, and documents of his house. After several days in captivity, a ransom of N20 million was demanded and after several pleas, it was reduced to N10 million and further down to N40,000, which was paid. However, he didn’t come back alive.
