A Zenith Bank staff of Suleja branch, Austin Ilom, was kidnapped 3 weeks ago from his house in Kubwa, has died after his release.
According to a Facebook user, Favour Ijeoma Christopher, crediting her post made on Monday to one Igbokwe, the kidnappers had asked for 50m ransom, saying “the bank refused to help him because he was kidnapped at home and not on duty.”
According to the post, “his brother inlaw, a serving senator, Agom Jarigbe, said that he won’t do anything until the bank he works with bring their own contribution for his release.
“He ended up bringing only 3m, his friends and colleagues in the office raised 11.5m in total.
“Kidnappers collected the 11m and asked them to go and get the balance, days later kidnappers called that they should come and pick him.”
Continuing, Favour said: “They went and picked a half dead man, shortly after he got to Bwari hospital, he asked for water; before they brought him the water, he gave up.”
The deceased is said to be the best marketing staff in Suleja branch.
