Bandits who abducted seven residents of Kuduru, a neighboring community of Bwari Area Council in Abuja, have reached out to the community, willing to release the kidnapped victims.
Recall that about seven residents of Kuduru including a pregnant woman, three children, and four adults were abducted on January 28th, 2024.
The abductors have, however, reached out to the dwellers of the Kuduru community asking for food items, drugs, bedsheets, cardigans, and N290 million before their victims could be released.
A leader of the community who spoke to the press on condition of anonymity revealed that “They have reached out to us to bring N290 million to secure their release or that they will kill two of them. We have a pregnant woman and three children among them,” he said.
“They asked us to bring bags of rice, packs of Indomie, cough syrups, antibiotics, bedsheets, and cardigans for the bandits’ use.
“They insist that the N290 million ransom must be complete for them to let our people go.”
He pleaded with Kayode Egbetokun, the Inspector-General of Police, and Taoreed Lagbaja, the Chief of Army Staff, to come to the rescue of the hostages.
“We know that they are trying their best but we plead with them to rescue our families like they did to the six sisters and the Ariyos,” he said.
“We understand that these people are already falling sick in captivity because of the harsh weather and the treatment there.”
