Kidnappers of five members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in Rivers are demanding a ransom of N100 million from family members, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
NAN learnt that the corps members, a female and four males, were kidnapped on Wednesday at Odomanya Community in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers.
They were on their way to inspect a school library project they constructed as their Community Development Service (CDS) of the NYSC.
Mr Ben Esan, the Public Relations Officer of the NYSC, told NAN on Thursday in Port Harcourt that the abductors had already contacted parents of the victims and were demanding a ransom of N100 million.
Esan also said that the kidnappers equally spoke with the NYSC Liaison Officer in Ikwerre in Rivers and had made a similar demand.
It will be recalled that a similar incident occurred in Omuma Local Government Area of Rivers during the INEC voters’ registration that took place in January.
