“She came to distribute clothes and other basic items to orphans ahead of the Eid-el- Fitr celebration.
“She exchanged pleasantries with many people in Mariri and posed for pictures with many people before they left in the evening, but somewhere between Crossing and Kasuwan Magani, their vehicle was said to have been attacked by the bandits who abducted them including the driver.”
“The bandits have made contact and demanded N100 million for the release of Ramatu and her daughter.”
The police in Kaduna State were yet to react to the incident.
