Kidnappers Of Seven Family Members Demand N30m Ransom

The abductors of seven family members in Abuja have given condition to release the kidnapped victims.

It was reported how the family members were kidnapped from their home at Zuma 1 in Bwari Central ward of the council on Friday.

One person was killed while two policemen sustained gunshots injuries in an attempt to stop the kidnap of the victims.

However, the kidnappers have reached out to those close to the victims and tabled their demands. They are asking for N30 million ransom before the victims will be set free.

A source close to the victims, who spoke to newsmen on Sunday, disclosed that a contact was established last Saturday, in which the bandits’ leader called through a phone and demanded the ransom.

He said the negotiator tried to explain the state of the nation and the concomitant cash crush which would make it difficult to meet the demand to the bandits, but their leader was having none of it and he abruptly ended the call.

He said though the man who was in the middle of the negotiation of the ransom was still waiting to hear from the bandits, the bandits’ leader could not be reached on phone again since on Saturday, after the conversation.
