Politics READ: What Jonathan is Doing About the Kidnap of his Foster Father 'Nengite' in Otuoke



Former President Goodluck Jonathan has vowed not to pay the ransom demanded by kidnappers for his foster father Chief Nitabai Inegite.

72 year old Chief Nengite was whisked away from his Otuoke county home on February 17 alongside his younger cousin, Samuel Okies. Okies was found dead days later in a river.

The Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police, Mr Peter Ogunyanwo disclosed Jonathan's position during the parade of 37 armed robbery and suspected kidnappers at the command headquarters. He hailed the position taken by Jonathan not to pay ransom so as to discourage kidnapping.

“On the kidnap of the foster father of Former President Gooluck Jonathan, Chief Inegite, I have met several times with the former President on the matter and he has insisted that he is not going to pay ransom.

“The kidnappers have reduced their ransom to about N2million but the former President said he would not pay ransom. We are on the trail of the kidnappers and we would get them.
