Kidnappers have refused to grant freedom to Usman Mayo a businessman in Taraba state after collecting N100 million as ransom.

Mallam Ibrahim Takum, spokesperson of the kidnapped, told newsm that Mayo has spent not less than 40 days in the custody of the kidnappers.

Narrating steps to rescue Mayo, Takum stated that the kidnappers requested for a sum of N100million, which was paid immediately.

He, however, expressed disdain at the kidnappers for demanding another N100million before Mayo would be freed.

He added that the kidnappers cut off communication when the family of Mayo was negotiating the sum and have since been unreachable.

When contacted, ASP David Misal, the spokesperson of the Taraba State Police Command, said he had no update on the case but promised to check his records.

As it stands now,the new development has thrown the family of the kidnapped into sorrow over his life condition.
