NYSC Corp Member Killed by Abductors after collecting N1.5m ransom

THE Department of State Security, DSS, in Rivers
State has arrested five suspects allegedly behind
the abduction and murder of a National Youth
Service Corps (NYSC) member, Mr Sampson
The suspects, who allegedly murdered the
hostage after being paid a ransom of N1.5 million
for his release, are already facing charges at a
magistrate court in Port Harcourt.
They reportedly disappeared after the abduction
and collection of ransom until they were tracked
by men of the DSS.
Charles Worlu, a brother of the deceased
hostage, said all the family wanted was justice.
He said the kidnappers made the family pay
them ransom twice, the first being one million
naira and the second time, five hundred thousand
naira and still murdered the hostage.
The corps member was serving in Imo State
before his abduction at Rumuokoro roundabout in
Obio Akpor local government area of Rivers
