The abductors of the Yagba West Local government chairman in Kogi State, Mr. Pius Kolawole have demanded N100 million for the release of the elected chairman.
The abductors reportedly called the Secretary to the local government as well as one of the family members of the chairman to lay down their demands.
The kidnappers were also said to have promised to call back by 10:00 am on Monday morning to continue with the negotiation.
The source said the kidnappers had also contacted the Kogi State Chairman, Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) Mr. Taofik Isah who doubled as the chairman of Ijumu council area.
It was gathered that the family, council area, and ALGOn had now agreed that only the ALGON Chairman should continue with the negotiation with the kidnappers.
Kolawole was kidnapped on Saturday evening on his way from Ilorin, Kwara state capital to his hometown of Egbe, the border town between Kogi and Kwara state.
