Zenith Bank Staff Dies After Paying N11 million Ransom

A Zenith Bank staff of the Suleja branch identified as Austin Ilom who was reportedly kidnapped 3 weeks ago from his house in Kubwa has died.

According to Joe Igbokwe who shared the sad story, wrote: “They asked for 50m ransom, the bank refused to help him because he was kidnapped at home and not on duty, his brother-in-law is a serving senator Agom Jarigbe he only said that he won’t do anything until bank brings their own contribution for his release.”

“He ended up bringing only 3m, his friends and colleagues in the office raised 11.5m in total.”


“Kidnappers collected the 11m and asked them to go and get the balance, days later kidnappers called that they should come and pick him up.”

“They went and picked a half-dead man, shortly after he got to Bwari Hospital he asked for water, but before they brought him the water, he gave up.”

“He was the Best marketing staff in Suleja branch. Such a sad end of Austin Ilom.”
