A man reported to be a staff of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, held his wife and children hostage at gunpoint.
Vanguard reports that the man, Felix Akeze asked that his wife repay what he had so far spent on her, else he would kill her and their kids.
The ‘hostages’ were freed by the police, who stormed the No. 5b Toyosi Adetoro residence of the couple, the report also claimed.
The police became aware of the incident after the woman’s brother alerted them.
