News men reported how kidnappers invaded the Palace of the monarch, His Royal Highness (HRH) Alhaji Hassan Shamidozhi, on Wednesday night.
When news men visited the community on Sunday, a family member of the traditional ruler, who preferred anonymity, said the kidnappers have vowed not to release him until they get N20 million.
“In fact, even on Saturday, morning, they called and directed the family to go and sell his house so that they can raise N20m ransom for them,” he said.
“One of the family members that they were communicating with told them that even house the chief is residing in is not worth N5 million,”.
According to him, the leader of the kidnappers threatened to keep the monarch in their custody even if it takes a year to raise the N20 million ransom.
Family members of Ahmed Joel, a resident who was kidnapped alongside his daughter, Precious, told news men that the abductors are demanding a N3 million ransom.
The Spokesperson of the FCT police command, DSP Adeh Josephine, is yet to reply to a text message sent to her about the ransom demand.
