U.S.-based Nigerian, Dennis Abuda was killed on Saturday 30th of January 2021, by his abductors.
According to a Premium Times report, the slain Mr Abuda, who is based in Atlanta, Georgia, was abducted along the Benin bypass by unknown gunmen alongside other members of his family who were travelling with him to Lagos to catch a flight to the U.S.
The Abudas were said to have left Fugar, in Etsako Central Local Government Area in the early hours of Saturday in a Toyota Sienna with registration number, LAGOS, SMK 606 GQ, when they were ambushed by the gunmen.
He was reportedly shot by his abductors after he slumped while being forced to march into the forest.
The body of the deceased was discovered in the forest on Wednesday, while his three abducted relatives were released on Tuesday after an undisclosed ransom was paid.
It was gathered from a source in the family that the deceased was killed ”after it was discovered that he could not walk anymore”.
“The kidnappers didn’t want to leave him behind as they were afraid that he would reveal their hideout to security agencies and so decided to shoot him.
“After killing him, they proceeded with the ransom negotiation and got the money. So sad. What a reason to kill a fellow human being,” he said.
