Gunmen Kidnap Father Of Oil Magnate In Benue State

Gunmen have again  kidnapped Atser Kyausu, the octogenarian father of Makurdi-based businessman. Kyausu had once been kidnapped from his Vandeikya Local Government home in 2016.

The late Special Adviser to the governor, Mr. Denen Igbana, had led security men and rescued him in Kwande council.

The gang leader was killed while three gang members were arrested, tried and remanded in Makurdi prison.

Police spokesman Moses Yamu said the gunmen stormed Kyausu’s house in a red Toyota.

“On December 28, they bundled him into the vehicle and drove away; his whereabouts have remained unknown since then,” Yamu said.

As at last night, the gunmen were yet to contact the family or ask for ransom.

The victim’s son, known by his business name Kyabiz, appealed to the kidnappers to release his father as he was sick.


  1. They should have changed his location after he was first kidnapped.

  2. Kidnapping is thriving in Nigeria. Not good at all
