The body of the businessman was found in a forest, hours after his abductors received the ransom.

A 39-year-old Kano businessman, Yahaya Hassan Musa has been killed by kidnappers after receiving N6 million ransom from his family.

The body of the businessman was found in a forest, hours after his abductors received the ransom.

The incident started on Thursday, when the victim, who is married with two kids, was coming back from Cotonou, Benin Republic, after a business trip and was kidnapped in a forest around Mopa area of Kogi State, with the kidnappers demanding N10m and later slashing it to N6m.

The abductors after abducting the businessman, demanded N10 million as ransom, but later reduced the money to N6 million, which the family paid in order to get him released.

A brother to the deceased, Abubakar Hassan Musa, who took the N6 million to the abductors stated that his late brother used to fly anytime he traveled but decided to return by road on the fateful trip.
