A news website, elombah.com, says the kidnappers of Prof. Kamene Okonjo, the mother of the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, have reduced their ransom demand from N1 billion to N200 million.
The website also claims that the kidnappers have demanded the resignation of the minister as a condition for the release of hermother.
The report claims that the fresh demands were the outcome of the latest negotiations between the victim’s family and the kidnappers on Wednesday.

The 82-year-old woman was seized from thepalace of her husband and Obi of Ogwashi Uku, Delta State, Prof. Chukwuka Okonjo, on Sunday by eight men riding in two Audi cars.
Two policemen and an unidentified civilian have so far been arrested in connection withthe incident.
