kidnappers demand N60m ransom for 6 victims in Adamawa
Kidnappers of 6 Gurin residents in Fufore Local Government of Adamawa State are demanding a whopping N60 million ransom from family members of the victims.
Gurin is a border town between Adamawa state and the Republic of Cameroun and the suspected kidnappers were said to have come from the neighboring country to commit the kidnap.
The six victims were abducted last weekend on their way to inspect their cows at Boro Wadu forest about three kilometers from Gurin town.
One of the abductees who was released on health grounds and simply identify himself as Malam Dahiru told Newsmen on the phone that the kidnappers have demanded N60 million from the family of the victims to secure their release.
“They place a bounty of N10 million on the head of each victim. They apprehended six of us but went away with five people and released me based on an agreement that they will not release my abducted younger brother until my ransom is paid. That is why they also demanded N10 million on my head making the total demand at N60 million,” he said.
