Kidnappers Demand N200m Ransom From Abducted Lagos PDP Chairman

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos state, Chief Philips Aivoji has been abducted.

The incident occurred at the Ogere area of Lagos-Ibadan Expressway at approximately 6pm on Thursday.

The kidnappers have established contact and are requesting a ransom of N200m for his release.

Alhaji Akeem Amode, the State’s Publicity Secretary, released a statement on Friday noting that another party member who managed to evade the kidnappers is currently undergoing medical treatment at a hospital.

“Aivoji was abducted on Thursday, January 25 at about 6.00 p.m. on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway while returning from a stakeholders’ meeting in Oyo State convened by Governors Seyi Makinde (Oyo) and Ademola Adeleke (Osun).

“It is disheartening that kidnapping has become a prevalent issue in our country, and the government’s inability to address this menace is deeply concerning.
The abduction of Aivoji underscores the pressing need for decisive actions from the government and stakeholders to eradicate this menace.

“Aivoji’s abduction was a violent incident, and his current whereabouts or any communication from the abductors remain unknown.

“We implore the governments of Oyo, Ogun, and Lagos states alongside security agencies, to expedite efforts and secure his safe return to his family and well-wishers,” he said.
