Former President Goodluck Jonathan has vowed not to bow to the demand of the kidnappers of his uncle, Chief Nitabai Inegite to secure his release.
The ex-president said he would not pay any ransom to the captors.
Chief Nengite, aged 72, a retired lecturer with the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, who is also a foster father to the former president, was whisked away from his Otuoke country home on February 17 alongside his younger cousin, Samuel Okies.
Okies was later found dead at Otuoke River.
The Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police, Mr Peter Ogunyanwo who disclosed this in Yenagoa during the parade of 37 armed robbery and suspected kidnappers at the command headquarters hailed the position taken by Jonathan not to pay ransom so as to discourage kidnapping.
