” My father was supervising his workers at his quarry site in Ikpeshi near Auchi when the Fulani herdsmen with guns kidnapped him, his wife and a customer.

“They collected N200,000 from the customer and released his wife but they took both of them inside the bush.

“They have not contacted us. We call on the Edo State Governor to do everything to release my father. We beg the kidnappers to release him unhurt” she pleaded.
