“The security situation in Kogi State is becoming porous every day. We can no longer sleep with our two eyes closed. Can you imagine, the family had to look from right to left to be able to afford the money we paid to the kidnappers. When they contacted us, we told them that we can’t afford such money. Things are really hard. The people are feeding from hands to mouth.

“They were very adamant insisting that they would kill my brother if we failed to cooperate with them. Me and my family were in trauma for several days when my younger brother was in the hands of these bandits. We shouldn’t forget that as I am talking to you, I escaped being kidnapped along Irekpeni/ Osara Okene road.
