Chief Falae Discloses His Abductors Wanted To Kill Him
One time presidential aspirant and former Secretary General to the Federation, Chief Olu Falae who was kidnapped a few weeks ago has made some shocking revelations.
He was kidnapped on his farm in Ondo state and was released a few days after his abductors demanded a ransom of N100 million.
Despite claims by the Nigerian Police that they released Chief Falae, he claims instead that he was released by his abductors.
The elder statesman claimed that the abductors intended to kill him. “They were not after money alone; they wanted to eliminate me by shooting my car, thinking I was inside the car.
“They later walked into my office with their sharp knives and cutlasses and started cutting me with machete before taking me into the bush. We trekked from Akure to Owo, following bush paths and swampy areas on my bare legs till we got to an area close to Ifon in Ose Local Government Area.” Chief Falae said.
He recounted his ordeal while hosting members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) on Friday.
