Impeccable sources close to the Rhodes-Vivour family informed SHIPS & PORTS DAILY of the ransom demand by the kidnappers.
Rhodes-Vivour was kidnapped along with her daughter and driver last Friday evening on the stretch of the Lagos-Benin Road.
The Lagos-based lawyer and the other two victims were on their way to Benin, the Edo State capital, for a wedding.
The Edo State Police Command, speaking through Deputy Superintendent of Police Moses Eguavoen, said that the Police had not yet established where the kidnapping took place.
“I cannot say exactly where it happened. I can’t say whether it happened in Edo State part or Ondo State. I have not been able to reach Ekiadolor and Okada divisions to know whether it actually happened in Edo State or not. When I get the appropriate information, I shall inform you. Expect our update on the issue latest Monday,” Eguavoen said last weekend.
Mrs Rhodes-Vivour is a member of the Lagos Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and an arbitrator with a law office in Lagos.
Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police Mohammed Abubakar, has ordered the police to deploy resources and men to rescue the wife and daughter of Supreme Court Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour.
