Muntari Yusuf, the General Manager, Public Relations of the Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NiMET)  kidnapped along Abuja-Kaduna expressway has reportedly ordered his family to sell his car and withdraw the last N2million in his account to meet the ransom demand of his abductors.

Mr Yusuf was kidnapped alongside many other travellers on Tuesday afternoon along the expressway while traveling to Abuja.

According to Daily Nigerian, in a recorded telephone conversation of Mr Yusuf, his brother, Nura, and one of the kidnappers, the kidnappers initially demanded N50million.

When the family raised N6million, the kidnappers rejected the offer, describing the issue as rubbish.

Mr Yusuf was then heard in emotion-laden voice directing his brother to withdraw N2million from his account and sell off his car to augment the initial offer.

“Since you are able to raise N6million, there is N2million in my account. You can go to the bank and withdraw it. If you reached agreement with them, fine. If they didn’t agree, go and sell that my (Toyota) Rav 4 car.
“I know the situation I am in. So don’t handle the issue with levity. Don’t speak to them (kidnappers) in harsh tone,” Mr Yusuf cautioned.
