Kidnappers of Sun DMD's Wife Demands N100million Ransom,PDP Condemns Abduction


Hours after kidnappers abducted Mrs. Oluwatoyin Nwosu, the wife of the Sun Newspapers Deputy Managing Director, Mr. Steve Nwosu, from her Okota residence in Lagos, they  have finally contacted the family, demanding a ransom of N100 million in the first call they made to the family.
Also, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni has described the attack as an ‘armed robbery operation.
Owoseni who spoke to newsmen at his office in GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, today said the home of the senior journalist remains an active crime scene since his wife was held hostage.
He said, “Steve Nwosu was a victim of armed robbery attack. The place is still an active crime scene, so we are careful in order not to jeopardize investigation."

In a related development, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) expresses shock over the abduction of the wife of the Deputy Managing Director of Sun Newspapers, Mr. Steve Nwosu.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh on Monday said the party was deeply saddened by the news of the abduction of Mrs. Toyin Nwosu, decrying it is as a devilish and barbaric act.

The PDP said it is deeply worried by the recent spate of abductions in the country, adding that the perpetrators cannot justify their actions under any guise whatsoever.

The party said its thoughts and prayers go for the safe return of Mrs. Nwosu and for other victims of this social vice. It also expressed confidence that the security forces would track down the abductors and expose those behind the crime.

“Finally, the PDP declares its support for each and every policy undertaken by the present Federal Government to limit to scourge kidnapping and other criminal activities. We stand together with the government against all enemies perpetrating criminal acts against lives and property in dear nation”, the party said.
