Distraught Nigerian Man Reveals Uncle Still Held Captive Despite Paying N12 Million Ransom



A harrowing tale of kidnapping has emerged from Umudagu Mbieri in Imo State, Nigeria, as a man named Ubawuike took to social media to draw attention to the prolonged captivity of his uncle. In a series of posts shared on social media platform X, Ubawuike detailed the distressing situation his family has been facing for the past five months.

According to Ubawuike, his uncle was abducted while his wife was pregnant, creating an even more challenging ordeal for the family. The kidnappers reportedly demanded a ransom of N12 million for his release, a sum that was paid in full three months ago. Despite complying with the demands, the family has been met with an agonizing silence from the abductors.

In the heartbreaking posts, Ubawuike expressed the family’s anguish, revealing that they are in the dark about his uncle’s current condition – whether he is alive or deceased. The ordeal has cast a shadow over what should have been a joyous occasion, as the kidnapped man’s wife recently gave birth to a baby boy. Despite the arrival of a new family member, the atmosphere remains somber, with no cause for celebration.

The lack of communication from the kidnappers has left the family in limbo, grappling with uncertainty and deepening their distress. Ubawuike’s posts serve as a desperate plea for assistance, drawing attention to the urgent need for intervention in securing the release of his uncle and bringing an end to the prolonged anguish faced by their family.

As the plight of this family gains visibility on social media, it raises broader concerns about the prevalence of kidnappings and the need for improved security measures to protect citizens and prevent such traumatic incidents from occurring.
