Police to Falae’s family: Don’t pay ransom to abductors

The Ondo State Police Command on Wednesday urged the family of a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Olu Falae, not to pay ransom to his abductors.

Falae’s abductors suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have reportedly reduced their initial N100 million ransom demand to N90million
Speaking with The Nation on Wednesday, the state’s police spokesman, Wole Ogodo, said police will never support the idea of paying ransom before the release of the elder statesman.
Ogodo said rescue efforts are ongoing, adding that police team led by the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mike Ogbodu, is doing its best to rescue Falae alive.
