The abductors of Sheik Adam Idoko, the Chief Imam of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, Central Mosque have demanded N20m for his freedom.

Idoko was kidnapped five days ago, and he holds the post of the Deputy Secretary-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA.

Gunmen abducted him in his village, Ogrute Enugu-Ezike, in Igbo-Eze North Council Area of Enugu State, where he had gone for a meeting.

A source from the central mosque, disclosed on Tuesday in Enugu that the kidnappers have demanded a ransom of N20m before they would free the Imam.

Obviously angered, the source said,“Till now, I am still surprised why the Imam who devoted himself to the work of God should be a target for kidnap.

“If the UNN central mosque has that kind of money, we would have finished the mosque we started building for the past four years.”
