Kidnappers of Pa Napoleon Alale, father of the Chairman of Sagbama Local Government Area council, Mr. Embeleakpo Alale, have reduced the N100million ransom earlier demanded for the release of the octogenarian to N10million.
Pa Alale’s abductors had earlier demanded N100million ransom for his freedom, but a family source, who pleaded not to be identified, said on Thursday that it had now been slashed to N10million.
He also disclosed that the ransom was at first cut to N60million before it was further slashed to N10million by the kidnappers.
Eighty-year-old Alale, who is said to be hypertensive and diabetic, was kidnapped on May 8, 2020 from his house in the riverine community of Agbele by some unknown gunmen.
First News gathered that the Sagbama council boss had only spoken once with his abducted father since the gunmen took the octogenarian away to an unknown destination.
