Osun Police Command said the kidnappers of two Chinese miners at a gold mine in Ifewara, Osun, demanded N10 million in ransom on Monday.
Command spokesman SP Yemisi Opalola said this on Wednesday while providing an update on the kidnapping incident to Osogbo reporters.
Opalola said the command was stepping up efforts to ensure Chinese nationals were saved unharmed.
She said the command was working alongside other security officers to ensure the victims were released.
She, however, urged residents of the state to also provide credible information about the activities of criminals in the state.
The Chinese nationals – Zhao Jian, 33, and Wen, 50 – were abducted on Monday from a mining site in Okepa / Itikan village, Ifewara, in the Atakunmosa-West local government area of Osun.
Their captors also reportedly shot two private guards of minors who were taken to hospital for treatment. (NOPE)
