Gunmen who kidnapped Patience Egbeni and Kate Eni, cousins to President Goodluck Jonathan, have allegedly demanded N50 million ransom for their release.
The two women were kidnapped on May 20 at Akipelai, in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
According to reports, the gunmen contacted their families five days after their abduction demanding the N50 million ransom to set them free.
However, Police Public Relations Officer, Butswat Asinim, said the victims had not been released, adding that he was not aware of the ransom demand. He also disclosed that security agencies were still making efforts to free them.
