The popular ‘Akas Baba’ real name Anthony Akatakpo, who works with Wazobia FM, was kidnapped from his residence in Rumuekini, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Eye witness accounts say that the kidnappers, who were about 12 in number, shot the radio presenter in the leg before taking him away in his private Mitsubishi Endeavor Sport Utillity Vehicle with registration number LSD 871 CM at about 3 am.
The kidnappers are demanding the sum of 10 million from the family. They left a message for Akatakpo’s pregnant wife instructing her to pay them a ransom of N10m or risk having him killed.
