One of them is identified as Prince Enyenihi, who was said to have contacted the journalist’s wife to demand a N100 million ransom.

“If you don’t pay, Tordue will be killed in seven days. For more information, call this number,” a text message from Enyenihi to Salem’s wife reportedly read.

The House of Representatives had called on Nigerian security agencies to launch an investigation into the whereabouts of the missing journalist and give a report to the house in two weeks.

This was made known in a motion raised on Tuesday by Ndudi Elumelu, the minority leader of the house.
