iexclusive News Nigeria reports that Kidnappers have killed an Atlanta, Georgia-based Nigerian Businessman, Prince Eloniyo Dennis Abuda,


He was shot after N10m ransom was paid to secure his release and that of other family members.


The businessman who came into the country for the Christmas celebration was abducted alongside some family members on Saturday, January 30, 2021, along the Benin-Akure road on his way to Lagos from Fugar, Etsako Central Local Government near Agbanikaka.


A woman who was travelling with him to Lagos to catch a flight back to the United States was also kidnapped.


A family source said that the realtor and president of Fugar America Foundation was reportedly shot dead by the kidnappers after he slumped during the forced long march to the forest.


This online news medium learnt that

“The kidnappers didn’t want to leave him behind as they were afraid that he will reveal their hideout to security agencies and so decided to shoot him.”

Meanwhile, other abducted persons who were travelling with Abuda were released safely after payment of the ransom money.


The abductors had earlier demanded a sum of N20 million but later reduced the ransom to N10 million after a series of negotiations and pleadings
