Kidnappers find only 20k in Ex-minister’s account
Mr Bagudu Hirse, former Minister of State for  Foreign Affairs, who was
kidnapped in Kaduna last November, has said that his captors were angry
when they confirmed that he had only N20,000 in his account.

Hirse, who recanted  his experience with the captors in an interview
with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Wednesday in Jos, said that
the captors confirmed the balance in his account when they checked his
phone.

“They went through my bank details and expressed deep disappointment
that a former minister and Ambassador had such a little sum in his
account.
“That was when they started harassing my wife because they had earlier asked for a ransom of N50 million.
“In
fact, when they confirmed the figure, they started doubting if I was
the Bagudu Hirse, a former Nigeria envoy to Namibia,” he said.
