How Sun DMD’s Wife Was Released

Freed wife of The Sun Deputy Managing Director (DMD) Mr Steve Nwosu, Toyin yesterday relived her experience in kidnappers’ hands. She was abducted on Monday and released early yesterday.

She said she was well treated, adding that the kidnappers served her food, but she could not eat.

Mrs Nwosu was released around 2.20am when the kidnappers took her to the First Avenue/Amuwo Odofin Link Bridge and gave her a phone to call her husband.

It was gathered that the kidnappers, who had demanded N100 million ransom, blindfolded her before taking her to the bridge, which is less than 15 minutes drive to the Nwosus’ Ago Palace Way, Okota home on the outskirts of Lagos.

After her call, they collected the phone from her and left in their speed boat.

Sun DMD Speaks On How Kidnappers Abducted His Wife & Ransom Required

The deputy managing director (DMD) cum editor-in-chief of The Sun Publishing Limited, Mr Steve Nwosu, yesterday told a pathetic story of how armed robbers attacked him and his wife, Toyin, before kidnapping her from their residence in Amuwo-Odofin local government area of Lagos State.

Nwosu explained that the robbers came at about 1.50am and after smashing the glass window and breaking the burglary proof of the house at Bale Street, Bashorun Ogundairo Estate, jumped inside the sitting room.

Nwosu said he heard a loud sound and when he went to the parlour, the robbers pointed guns at him.

The DMD said one of them pointed a pistol while the other pointed an AK-47 rifle at him. He said there was nothing he could do because he could not fight people with guns.

He said they slapped him and kicked him several times before ordering him to lie down on the floor.

He said they were stepping on his body as they demanded for money but unfortunately, he had no money in the house.

Nwosu further said the miscreants held his wife and took her to several rooms in search of cash but when they found out that there was no money in the house, they were enraged and decided to blindfold him.

He said they pushed him outside and later brought him back to the room and abducted his wife, adding that they flogged him with horsewhip.

He said as they were leaving, they asked if he could remember his phone number by heart and he said yes. They told him to call it, after which they said he would hear from them.

He said they took away two phones, laptop and other things but the third phone was covered by some items which prevented them from seeing it.

“The robbers were making funny demand of N100 million. We are still negotiating. They said they will call back , so I’m still waiting for them to call back. The robbers escaped in a speedboat through the waterway”, he said.
