The abductors of the Managing Director of AZECO Pharmacy in Okene, Kogi State Abdulazeez Obajimoh, have rejected the N10 million ransom offered by his family, insisting on N30 million as the only option to secure his freedom.

Obajimoh was abducted by unknown gunmen in Iruvucheba community in Okene local government area of Kogi state, in early July.

According to a family source, the kidnappers called on Thursday to make demands for ransom and rejected the initial N10 million ransom offered by the family.

The source maintained that after the abductors rejected the offer, they insisted on N30m ransom as the only option for him to regain his freedom, calling the initial offer “chicken change”.

The Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN), Kogi State chapter, had earlier decried the incessant attacks and abduction of their members across the state.

In a statement issued by the state chairman of PSN, Dr Lawal Muhammed said most of the monies invested in pharmaceuticals are loan from banks.

He urged the perpetrators and the general public not to see pharmacists as rich people.

He also called on the state government and security agencies to map out strategies to curb the menace.
