Kidnappers of five family members including four children and their mother in Barakallahu community in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State have demanded N500 million ransom.

The kidnappers had stormed the community last Friday at 1:30 am and kidnapped four children of the same parents including their mother.

The victims were identified as Muhammad Mustapha Abdulsalam, Hauwa Abdulsalam, Muhammad Abdulsalam, Ummul-Khairi Abdulsalam, and their mother, Hajara Abdulsalam.

The Father of the kidnapped children, Abdulsalam Haruna, a road-side tailor confirmed the development to our correspondent.

He said, “They contacted me on Sunday and demanded that I pay N100 million per each person making a total of N500 million. I am just an ordinary road-side tailor. Where on earth do they want me to get that kind of money?

“We have been talking with them on how they can reduce the ransom as I do not have anything to offer. I pray God Almighty to see me through this trying time.”

He called on the Kaduna State Government and the Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan to come to his aid.

On 24 August 2020, armed bandits attacked Prince Academy Secondary School at Damba-Kasaya village in Chikun Local Government Area of the state killed one person and kidnapped four students identified as Favour Danjuma, 9, Miracle Danjuma, 13, Happy Odoji, 14, and Ezra Bako, 15, and a teacher, Christiana Madugu.

Police authorities in the state are yet to speak on the matter.  (Daily Trust)
