Lukman, according to findings, is a businessman who sells London used phones at Owode market in Offa.
The abduction triggered a protest by residents of offa, who stormed the Olofa of Offa’s palace demanding the rescue and release of the captive.
Lukman’s abductors have reportedly demanded a N20m ransom for his release
