Man kidnapped for paying N2m ransom for wife, three children’s release



A MAN, who went to pay N2 million ransom for the release of his wife, son and two daughters, who were kidnapped at Anguwar Janruwa in Kagarko LGA of Kaduna State, has been kidnapped by bandits.
It was gathered that the bandits had two weeks ago, invaded Anguwar Janruwa in Janjala community and kidnapped a housewife, Hauwa Abubakar, her son, Idris Abubakar and two daughters, Ummi and Sadiya.
According to a relative to the victims, Audu Bajeko, the man, Abubakar Ardo, took the N2 million ransom to the bandits at a location on Sunday, but was also held along with his family by the bandits because he did not raise N20 million ransom they demanded to release his wife and children.
“It was around 5:30pm on Sunday, when the bandits’ leader called to inform them that they have held the man who brought N2 million to secure the release of his wife and children.
“When asked what the problem is, the bandit said the amount the man brought was not what they demanded,” he said, adding that the bandits’ leader insisted that the man and his family would not be released until the balance of N18 million was paid, which threw the relations of the victims in confusion as the bandit now have the entire family.
He said that the relatives struggled hard before they raised the N2 million ransom taken to them.
Madaki of Janjala, Samaila Babangida, while confirming the development, said activities of bandits had thrown the entire community into confusion.
“Just two days ago, the senior wife of Ardo Fulani was killed after they collected N2 million from the family. This morning again, we received information that another man who went to secure the release of his family was also held after they collected N2 million from him.”
He appealed to security agencies to come to the aid of the people of Janjala community to tackle the activities of the bandits terrorising the area.
Spokesman of the Kaduna State Police Command is yet to make any statement over the incident as at press time.
