Suspected kidnappers, who abducted a former chairman of the Ekiti State chapter of Independent Petroleum Marketers (IPMAN), Alhaji Suleiman Akinbami, at one of his fuel stations in Ado Ekiti, a few days ago, have allegedly demanded a N60m ransom for his release.

Akinbami was kidnapped last Sunday, around 9:00pm, by four gunmen at one of his several filling stations located along the Ado Ekiti- Ijan Ekiti road, Ado Ekiti.

A source close to the family, who pleaded for anonymity, told newsmen in Ado Ekiti, on Wednesday, that the abductors had contacted his family on Tuesday night, and reportedly demanded N60m before they could release him.
