Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala

Ngozi Okonjo's mum- Prof Kamene

Gunmen, yesterday Sunday 9th December, 2012, raised the stake when they abducted the mother of the Minister of Finance, Prof. Okonjo-Iweala, Professor Kamene Okonjo, in Ogwashi-Uku, Delta State.
Okonjo-Iweala’s mother, 82, who is the wife of the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku Kingdom, Professor Chukwuka Aninshi Okonjo Agbogidi, was kidnapped yesterday at about 1:30 pm at the husband’s palace in Ogbe-Ofu quarters by eight gunmen who stormed the palace in two Audi 80 cars.
It was gathered that the kidnappers had easy access to the palace as the policeman expected to be on duty was absent. The kidnappers, therefore, held all the workers carrying out renovation work at gunpoint. One of the suspects was said to have gone upstairs and picked the bag of the Obi’s wife while the woman, who was sitting under a tree after serving the workers some soft drinks, was whisked away.
The kidnappers that abducted the 82 year-old mother of Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala have contacted the family, demanding for a whopping $1 billion ransom.The demand for a $1billion ransom was relayed to the family of the octogenarian
The family is yet to react to the ransom demanded but $1billion is definitely a large amount.
