Kidnappers Demand N200m for Release of Turkish Nationals



Kidnappers of two Turkish expatriates in Akwa Ibom have demanded N200 million to release them.

The victims were abducted on April 10 from their Airstrip Hotel room in Eket Local Government Area of the state.

A security source told NAN in Eket that the kidnappers had been in touch with the BKS Construction Company in Onna Local Government Area where the expatriates work.

He said that the kidnappers contacted the construction company and demanded N200 million as ransom to release them.

“The (kidnappers) have demanded the sum of N200 million before the victims could be released to the company. The company is negotiating with the abductors to secure the release of the victims,” the source said.

According to the source, the firm is offering N500,000.

The State Police Public Relations (PPRO), ASP Chilly Ikechukwu, said the police were not aware of the ransom.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
