A video of Dennis Abuda, a US-based Edo prince, spraying dollars in his village a few days before he was kidnapped and killed, has surfaced online.
In the video, Abuda is seen spraying $1 dollar bills on local entertainers during an event in his village.
The decomposing body of Abuda was found in a bush near the small town of Agbanikaka, Ovia North East Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday, 2 February 2021, four days after he was kidnapped
The businessman who came into the country for the Christmas celebration was abducted alongside some family members on Saturday, 30 January 2021, along the Benin-Akure road on his way to Lagos from Fugar, Etsako Central Local Government near Agbanikaka.
The realtor and president of Fugar America Foundation was reportedly shot dead by the kidnappers after he slumped during the forced long march to the forest.
“Abuda was shot dead by the abductors when he couldn’t walk anymore and slumped. The kidnappers didn’t want to leave him behind as they were afraid that he will reveal their hideout to security agencies and so decided to shoot him.” a family source told Tribune.
He was killed after payment of N10 million ransom to secure his release and that of the other family members was made.
