The gunmen that abducted Chinese miners in Itikan Village, Osun State, on Monday, have demanded a ransom of N10 million before releasing the victims.
The spokesperson for Osun State Police Command, Yemisi Opalola, disclosed this while featuring on a radio programme in Osogbo on Wednesday.
Opalola, however, said the combined team of police and other security agencies had launched manhunt for the perpetrators of the crime.
“The kidnappers are demanding ransom and we are still working on ways to rescue the Chinese expatriates.
“The kidnappers are demanding a sum of N10 million before they will release the Chinese expatriates.
“We plead with the general public to help the police with information that will help its men to be more efficient in securing lives and property in the state,” Opalola said.
