Don’t Pay Ransom To Kidnappers, Edo Police Boss Tells Nigerians


The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Philip Aliyu Ogbadu, has cautioned Nigerians against paying a ransom to kidnappers.

Speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Friday, the commissioner advised the citizens to quickly report any kidnapping incident to the police authorities.

“What I want to encourage the public is that if anything happens rather than going quietly to pay a ransom, inform the police so that, even in negotiation, we can be involved and we will know how to track them and bring them to book,” the police boss said in reaction to the recent kidnap and killing of a US-based Nigerian in Edo State.
