Shocking: How A Popular Lawyer Gave His Son To Kidnappers To Gain His Own Freedom

Renowned Lagos-based lawyer, Mike Ozekhom, popular for representing corrupt leaders who stole public funds or caught in one act of corruption or the other, despite the obvious charges of corruption against them.

 As in the case of ex-Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, he still defended him until he finally confessed and was convicted.

Mike Ozekhome is also the lawyer representing Hon Farouk Lawan who was caught on tape collecting a huge some of money from businessman Femi Otedola as bribe.

 So we were not really surprised when we got the story that Ozekhome struck a deal with the guys who kidnapped him with his son.

The good thing however is that this time Ozekhome entered into a deal that enabled him to secure his life from the den of the dare-devil kidnappers who kidnapped him on August 23, 2013.

The revelation is that Ozekhome's son and head of his chamber had gone to secure his release with an amount that is not up to what the kidnappers demanded for, hence they rejected the money.

The two persons who had gone to secure Ozekhome’s release were said to have told the kidnappers that they couldn’t raise up to the required amount and that only their father could raise such.

Then a deal was struck. Ozekhome pleaded with the kidnappers to take his son and allow him go so that he can raise the money they asked for. One week after he was released to got the money for his ransom, Ozekhome paid the ransom to the kidnappers and secured the release of his son and head of his chambers..

So, the truth is that Ozekhome was not actually released on September 12th as the media was made to believe as he left their custody about a week earlier.
