A member of staff at the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mustapha Sulaiman-Hunkuyi, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen Wednesday night.

The banker is a son of a former senator representing Kaduna North, Sulaiman Hunkuyi.

Confirming the abduction to DAILY NIGERIAN, Dauda Hunkuyi, a brother to the former senator, said the gunmen had contacted them and made a huge ransom demand.

He, however, did not disclose the amount demanded by the kidnappers.
