A voice note purported to be a conversation between a member of a kidnap gang and a family member of a kidnapped victim has been shared online.
It was gathered that the victims went for a burial ceremony in Isuikwuato local government area of Abia State when they were abducted by the kidnappers.
In the viral voice note, the victim who spoke to his relative first, pleaded with him to find the ransom money at all cost to secure his release.
The victim then handed the phone over to the kidnapper to negotiate with his relative. The family member tried to appeal to the emotions of the kidnapper by saying everyone would die one day, including him (the kidnapper).
However, the kidnapper was not moved by his words and tackled him for telling him that he would also die, like he doesn’t know he has limited time on earth before choosing to become a kidnapper.
The family member proceeded to ask the kidnapper what he wanted and he responded saying, they should pay the ransom otherwise they would kill all the victims.
The kidnapper returned the phone to the victim to speak with his relative and the victim who sounded terrified, was heard saying “Please we are dying here. Biko. Please.’ Please save my life”, amid tears.
When the relative asked for the amount the kidnappers are demanding for, the victim said they asked for N30 million for one Edozie, N10 million for one Bamanganu and N20 million for one Sylva.
The family member was taken aback by the huge sums of money and questioned how he is expected to raise the money.
