The phone and accessories dealer popularly known as LUKTECH was abducted by gunmen, who killed his pregnant wife, Hauwa, last Saturday in Offa town.

Family sources, who confirmed the development to Daily Trust, on Wednesday said his release came after the payment of the N2m ransom.


Another family member who was very conversant with the negotiation process said that they made extra demands apart from the N2m ransom.

According to him, after agreeing to collect the N2m, the kidnappers requested for one carton of Multina drink (24 bottles), another carton of milk (24 tins), a pack each of Benson and Hedges and St Moritz cigarettes, with a stern warning that the security agencies must never be involved.

Spokesperson of the Kwara State Police Command, Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the release of the victim.
