Ex-President, GEJ Abandons Foster Father In Kidnapers’ Den, Vows Not To Pay Ransom


Former President Goodluck Jonathan has vowed not to bow to the demand of the kidnappers of his uncle, Chief Nitabai Inegite to secure his release.
The ex-president said he would not pay any ransom to the captors.

Chief Nengite, aged 72, a retired lecturer with the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, who is also a foster father to the former president, was whisked away from his Otuoke country home on February 17 alongside his younger cousin, Samuel Okies.

Okies was later found dead at Otuoke River.

The Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police, Mr Peter Ogunyanwo who disclosed this in Yenagoa during the parade of 37 armed robbery and suspected kidnappers at the command headquarters hailed the position taken by Jonathan not to pay ransom so as to discourage kidnapping.

His words, “On the kidnap of the foster father of Former President Gooluck Jonathan, Chief Inegite, I have met several times with the former President on the matter and he has insisted that he is not going to pay ransom.

“The kidnappers have reduced their ransom to about N2million but the former President said he would not pay ransom. We are on the trail of the kidnappers and we would get them.

“People should not pay ransom. Just like Governor Seriake Dickson also did not pay ransom for the freedom of his sister, people should be discouraged to pay ransom so that the business of kidnapping would stop.”

He noted that while criminal elements were devising various ways to beat security network to commit crime, the command is up to the task to combat crime.

Ogunyanwo who also disclosed that his men foiled a kidnap attempt of the newly sworn-in Chairman of the State Environmental sanitation Authority, Hon Robert Enogha, urged members of the public to come with useful information that would ensure that criminal elements unleash terror on the land.
