While recounting the story of Ndu’s kidnap, John said, “Mike Ndu was alongside other passengers, kidnapped by suspected bandits at Okene, Kogi State.

“The bus took off from Onitsha to Abuja around 7:20 am last Monday, 21th December, 2020.

“Throughout his journey, his family members were in contact with him, until around 3 pm, when his phone was no longer reachable.

“Nobody heard from him again till, Tuesday, 22nd December, 2020, when a strange number called his elder brother, Sir Joseph. C Ndu, demanding for a ransom of N50 million or his brother, Mike would go down.”

John said the children of PA Ndu, resident in Abuja have visited the transport company, Wazobia park in Gwagwarada Abuja, where the Manager, one Mr Ifeanyi Smart said the company would assist with every useful information.

John added, “The 70 years old Mike Ndu From Ogbunike in Oyi Local government area, is facing health challenges including diabetes and hypertension, which may be aggravated by his present ugly condition. He is equally on daily medication.
