SSS Nabs Okonjo’s Abductors in Bank

Operatives of the State Security Service, SSS, have arrested six of the abductors of Prof. Keneme Okonjo, mother of the Coordinating Minister of the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala. Okonjo, wife of the Obi of Ogwuashi-Ukwu, Prof. Chukwuka Okonjo, was kidnapped on December 9, 2012 at the palace of the traditional ruler.

However, through concerted efforts of the combined security agencies in the country, the victim was released on December 14. But in a bid to unravel those behind the kidnapping, arrests were made by the police, Army and men of the SSS.


Last week, 63 of the suspects earlier arrested by the Army were released unconditionally when their culpability could not be established. A competent source at the SSS told National Mirror yesterday that six of the real suspects had eventually been arrested in Asaba, Delta State, and might be flown to Abuja today.

The source also confirmed that a N40m ransom was actually paid for the release of the 82-year- old retired professor of Sociology.

Explaining how the suspects were arrested, the source said: “The N40m, which was paid to the kidnappers was marked money from the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN. “What happened was that the money was paid on Wednesday by our men and by Thursday, two persons had gone to the Nebisi Road branch of an old generation bank to deposit N15m out of the money.

Because it was marked money, they were promptly arrested. “Our men were able to track four of the kidnappers with the aid of the two persons. Right now, we are on the trail of the remaining four suspects.

“The six suspects are supposed to be brought to Abuja tomorrow (today) to face further interrogation.”

Asked why the operatives were not able to arrest the suspects the time they came for the money, the source explained: “Don’t forget that as at that time the woman was still with the kidnappers and they could decide to kill her if they suspect anything phony. “Our major concern then was to ensure that the woman regained her freedom and was not harmed in any way.

In fact, that was the point the minister kept hammering to us. “She said that we should do everything possible to secure her mother alive, even if it meant paying whatever ransom the kidnappers asked for. “If you know how this is done, once they came for the money, we knew that the game was up for them. We knew that we must get them unless they would not spend that money in Nigeria.”

  11. Nice one Ladun, very soon linda will go and copy an paste as I noticed shes been doing for the past two wks.
    They are not the first to do it, Arthur Eze's brother was kidnapped about two or three months ago, and they did the same thing, paid them with marked notes, and when they came to deposit the money in the bank they arrested the lady, and she then disclosed some rich well known touts in anambra that are behind the kidnapping business. In naija when ur rich and famous, the police , sss , army etc will be at ur beck and call.
    Unfortunately Kidnappers will now start just kidnapping the rich and no name people not the famous ones or connected ones so they can get away with it.

    1. As in serious mumu guys. First of all, it was a high profile case and they should not have collected mint(new notes), secondly they should have chilled for at least 2months, thirdly they should have changed the cash to foreign currencies. Or better still they should have asked for gold bars, am really not happy with those dudes they are learners joor. They just wasted their own opportunity to shop subsidy money. Post my comment oo

  16. this is a big disgrace on our security operatives. do they realise that if they employed these tacyics since kidnapping started, it would have reduced a great deal by now. they have allowed the situation to degenerate to this level where numerous families have been put through hell, nnot to talk of the women raped and molested. so we can mark bills in nigeria? with all the money they are using to eat gucci rice and prada beans, we can invest a fraction of that in getting top notch security gadgets, cctv's, communication devices, better pay and training for police, that is if the lives of nigerians mean anything to our government.

    pls i enjoin kidnappers nationwide, kidnap more politicians, at least money will come out. maybe when it reaches more of their household they will finally take action.

    so a whole minister left her mother with kidnappers and was negotiating up to 40m? she could not pay the 200 immediately and still deploy the same marked money tactics?

  18. Sentimental government! I know of a case where kidnappers where caught red handed by d naija police. Dey were arrested and one week later dey were granted bail and d police had to organise a lecture for the kidnappers advising them to quite kidnapping and get something doing. Imagine terrorist being granted bail after they were caught...........now it is the minister's mothers case and they are making noize. Mumu sss........
