The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has raised the alarm over the kidnapping of its Vice Chairman (South-east), Dr. Chudi Nwike, in Anambra State on Tuesday.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party quoted Dr. Nwike’s younger brother, who has been contacted by him (Dr. Nwike), as saying the kidnappers are demanding 30 million naira (in foreign currency) as ransom.
