The kidnappers of a Lagos monarch, Oba Oniba of Iba Town, Yusuf Oseni have named their ransom.
Barely a week after the abduction, criminals have contacted the family of the king demanding for the sum of about N500 million before his release.
It will be recalled that the 73-year-old monarch was abducted last Saturday, July 16, 2016 and five persons including the wife of the monarch were shot.
It was reported that three of the victims are dead; two others are recuperating at different hospitals.
Some of the victims were Riliwan Rasak, 25, an artisan, Sunday Okanlawon, the palace guard and an unidentified commercial motorcycle operator popularly called Okada.
When Vanguard visited the home of the monarch at about 1:30 pm on Friday, sympathizers have continued to throng the home of the monarch to assure the family of safe return of the Oba.
In an interview with Vanguard, a palace source disclosed that the abductors have contacted the family.
