Kidnappers of Monarch Demand N50m

The abductors of the traditional ruler of the Orhifi Kingdom, Delta State, Enemor II, have demanded N50m as ransom.
The royal father was said to have been kidnapped after Osisa Bridge in Ndokwa East Local Government Area, while another royal father escaped abduction.
The kidnappers were said to have laid in ambush for Enemor II, while he was on his way to Asaba for the monthly meeting of traditional rulers.
According to the royal family, the kidnappers have demanded for N50m to free him.
They said: “They have made contact, asking that they want N50m. The monarch told his abductors, who reportedly spoke Hausa language, that he is a royal father and offered them money to release him, but they refused.
“They removed his crown and bundled him (Ovie of Agbarha kingdom) into the bush just like they did to the Ubulu Uku monarch, the late Obi Ofulue, who they took hostage and killed last year.”
Another royal father, Okukeren III, Ovie of Arhavwarien, an Urhobo Kingdom was luckier as he managed to escape.
The state Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had been informed of the abduction and the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the incident and said the police were already on the hunt for the suspected kidnappers.
