Less than 24 hours after the kidnap of Muiba, wife to Osun State House of Assembly Speaker, Mr. Najeem Salaam, her abductors have demanded N200m ransom for her release.
It was said that the suspected kidnappers phoned the Speaker on Wednesday to make the demand.
And the hoodlums assured him that his wife would be released as soon as the money was paid.
Investigation showed that the suspects told Salaam to call them back between 11am and 12 noon on Wednesday, assuring him that his wife was in safe.
But the Speaker says he would not comment publicly on the matter.
He said, “People have been telling me about N200m ransom; you know, people would come up with various versions but I’ve not been contacted by the kidnappers.”
Meanwhile, investigation has revealed that the six-man gang trailed Muiba, who is in her 40s, from her shop in Olota’s compound to the Speaker’s residence in Oke Oyo area.
