Headed by the Director of the Prosecutor's Office, Titilayo Shitta-Bey, Okeagwu said: "I am a manager of the pharmaceutical company Maydon and have worked with them for more than seven years." After we learned of Duru's abduction, we expect to hear the kidnappers to know what to do to rescue him.

"As manager of the Idumota branch, we worked to raise money for the kidnappers when they asked for a ransom." After about two months, Anselm Duru, the brother of Donatus, called me to hand over the money to the kidnappers who had raised 223,000 euros. .

"After counting the money, we put it in a polyethylene bag and wrapped it up nicely with duct tape and went with the money." Anselm gave me his phone number that they would use to direct me to where I would take the ransom.

"I started receiving calls from the kidnappers with the phone saying that I should not make mistakes, that if I did, they would shoot me." They asked me if I knew the way to mile 2 and I said yes, I went with the money inside the vehicle, I put the money under the passenger seat in the front and I moved out of the complex towards mile 2".
