Ayo Arise Confesses

Senator Ayo Arise, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has made a shocking confession… “I was kidnapped along Lokoja – Abuja road last December while returning to the Federal Capital Territory after visiting Ekiti State and held by my captors for six days. I have a good reason to thank God for surviving the kidnap as not all persons kidnapped come out alive.”

“After my experience, someone was kidnapped and was still killed even after paying N25million twice, as ransom. So, how do you describe that? I was with the kidnappers from Sunday, December 3 to Friday, December 8, 2017.”

“I can assure you that it’s not an experience that you’ll want to have. There’s nothing more frightening than for you to know that you don’t even know what would happen to you. I doubt that the kidnappers would ever consider engaging in other businesses, given the huge money involved.”

“I advised them to consider taking up other businesses and live a better life after collecting millions, but the kidnappers replied that it was their “bosses in Abuja that actually take the money and that they only get something small.”

“So I have doubts in my mind that even if jobs are provided for those ones, would that be as lucrative as kidnapping one person or two people and collecting N20 million. That’s the fear, it’s like they have tasted blood and it has become very, very dangerous.”

“Between Oye and Ilupeju, they contributed N4 million within 24 hours. So that is one of the things that touched me to the marrow. My friends rallied round; the people of the town are showing appreciation for having a son that believes in them.”
