Goodluck Apprehensive Over Kidnapped Uncle

Associates of President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday said that the Presidency is apprehensive over the fate of 70-year-old foster father of President Goodluck Jonathan, Chief Inengite Nitabai, who has been in the kidnappers den.
Also alleged to be a source of worry to the Presidency is the N500 million ransom demanded by the kidnappers for the release of the septuagenarian.
An aide of the president yesterday said that the failure of the security agencies to track down the kidnappers and rescued the victim had heightened anxiety in the State House.
The abductors of Chief Nitabai added more pains to the Ebele family in Otuoke, Ogbia local government area of Bayelsa State when they placed N500m ransom on him.
The outrageous demand, it was learnt, had unsettled members of Nitabai’s family and the Presidency. The family is however alleged to be doing everything to secure his release.
A security source told our correspondent that the abductors threatened to kill their victim if the family failed to produce the money.
The source who pleaded anonymity said the family had constituted a committee to evaluate the demand, establish negotiations with the abductors and facilitate his release.
He said the kidnappers as usual warned against the involvement of security operatives in the matter.
Already, the Presidency has ordered massive deployment of security personnel in Otuoke and the Niger Delta creeks to free the victim.
The gunmen seized Nitabai on Sunday after collecting N400,000, from his wife.

  1. His own is uncle, others own is no body.I don't blame them God will judge

  2. You are the the idiot. This kidnap happened even before the killing of those children. What will one do without your likes talking trash. If he had postponed the celebration you will still complain of wasting resources already expended in the preparation of the event or even say it is because of his uncle's kidnap and not because of the slaughtered school children. You likes should shut up because you don't know what It is like been a leader in a country like ours. So shut your mouth or better still use for prayers for our country.

  3. Jonathan should stop pretending,he should go and give them part of d money he has been stealing 4rm us or how much is 500 million in 49 billion dollars or is he so wicked to allow his uncle to be killed even though he doesn't care abt Nigerians been killed in d north including school children

  4. You call your own presedent long do you think it will take you to get there.maybe you are one of the kidnapper. That is how it have no respect for your presedent.and you call him an idiots, what will you do if you are to be the presedent of this country. He is a gift God has given to us. Please preserve him and respect him

  5. 500M is just a chicken change for a person looting $49bn in few months which is d size of Nigeria 2yrs budget. Pls don't be greedy oga GEJ.

  6. What stop the president from declaring is asset publicly if he is sure that he has no cockroash in his cupboard? I think the kidnappers believes the president has 2 much money since he (GEJ) refused 2 declare his asset so, Jonathan should stop being stingy and pay the litle change that they re demanding for accept the uncle isn't an important person 2 him
