Kidnappers Demand N1.5billion For Gov Emefiele's Wife's Release

The kidnappers who abducted Margaret Emefiele, wife to sitting Central Bank Governor Godwin Emefiele, are demanding N1.5 billion for her release.

According to SaharaReporters, they learned of these developments from a source with an intimate understanding of the delicate situation.

Mrs. Emefiele was abducted yesterday along the Benin-Agbor Road. In addition to her, four other people were abducted including two other females, a male, and her driver.




Mrs. Emefiele had a four-man police detail attached to her. However, when the police were confronted with the superior firepower of the kidnappers they ran away, leaving her and the other victims in the hands of the criminals.


She was waylaid by the gunmen around Ugoneki town along the Benin-Asaba-Onitsha expressway in Edo State. The operation left one of her orderly dead, according to a source.

The source said Mrs. Emefiele had boarded a flight from the nation’s capital of Abuja and landed at the Benin Airport in Edo State from where she left for Agbor by road.

It was further gathered that the hoodlums intercepted the Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) that the high profile citizen was in and shot one of her orderly who attempted to resist the operation.

Since her abduction, the kidnappers have been in constant communication with Mr. Emefiele, his representatives, and police negotiators. They are reportedly discussing the N1.5 billion ransom demand.

SaharaReporters also learned that the CBN is attempting to keep details of Mr. Emefiele wife’s abduction hidden from the media because it may scare off investors in Nigeria.
