The men who abducted German professor and archaeologist, Professor Peter Breunig, and his associate, Johannes Buringer have demanded N60 million for their release. The two men were abducted in Jenjela village in the Kagarko Local Government of Kaduna State on Wednesday, February 22. The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim K. Idris, had earlier ordered special forces to secure the release of the two men and also, Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, had summoned the IGP over the abduct.

However, according to reports, a spokesman for the abductors is said to have made the demand and warned against the involvement of security agents.

Public Relations Officer for the Force, Jimoh Moshood had earlier revealed that the professor didn’t go along with his security detail to the site where he was abducted.

In a statement, he said

“Though the German archaeologists have police officers attached to them for their protection at the NOK Archaeology Research Project Centre, they did not go with the policemen to the excavation site where they were abducted.

“The Nigeria Police Force, while assuring all Nigerians and foreign nationals in the country of their safety, wishes to implore them to always request and obtain police escort to protect them any time they are embarking on research, mining and related endeavors outside the towns and cities across the country,” he added.
