The Rivers state Department of State Security, DSS, arrested five suspects allegedly behind the abduction and murder of a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Mr Sampson Worlu even after they collected N1.5m ransom for his release.
The five suspects are facing charges at a magistrate court in Port Harcourt for his abduction and death.
According to Vanguard, after the men collected the N1.5m, they reportedly disappeared and the victim's family members couldn't locate them. Fortunately, men of the DSS were able to track them all down and arrest them.
Charles Worlu, a brother of the deceased hostage, said all the family want is justice.
He said the kidnappers asked the family for ransom two times. He said they first asked for one million naira and then asked for another five hundred thousand naira which they paid to them for the release of their brother, but the men still killed him.
Worlu was serving in Imo State before his abduction at Rumuokoro roundabout in Obio Akpor local government area of Rivers State.
