Suspected armed bandits are demanding a fresh sum of N2 million and two motorcycles as ransom to release a woman, Shamsiya and her 16-year-old daughter, Mahapuza, kidnapped from Janjala community in Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to Daily trust, the bandits on February 5, 2023, invaded the victims’ residence and whisked away the woman and her daughter alongside her husband, Mustapha (pictured above), said to be an APC youth leader, at gunpoint.
However, after payment of N2 million ransom, the bandits freed Mustapha and held Shamsiya and Mahapuza.
The Madaki of Janjala, Samaila Babangida, Mustapha’s elder brother, told the publication that the kidnappers had demanded another N2m and two motorcycles to release the remaining victims.
According to him, the bandits released Mustapha on Monday, after collecting N2 million, adding that they told him (Mustapha) to go and raise another N2 million and two brand new motorcycles before the wife and her daughter would be set free.
“As I am talking to you, my younger brother’s wife and her daughter are still in captivity, while they asked him to go home and raise another N2 million with two motorcycles before they will free the wife and his daughter,” he said.
Babangida said Mustapha is currently in a hospital responding to treatment due to the traumatic experience he went through in the hands of the bandits.
“My worry now is how will the family raise additional N2 million and two motorcycles for these bandits,” he added.
