…….Police vow to rescue victims

—–Pantami’s friend donates N50m to pay ransom

A relation to the family whose children were abducted in Abuja, Sherifdeen Al-Kadriyar, has shared the harrowing details of how the eldest of the children was killed by her abductors to prove they were serious about getting fully paid their N60 million ransom.

Recall that the late Nabeeha, her father, alongside her sisters were abducted in the Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Tuesday night.

A distressed Al-Kadriyar told Daily Trust, that when the victims family told the kidnappers they had raised about half of the N60 million ransom, they were enraged.

He said: “On Friday which was the day the deadline they gave us lapsed, they called and we tried to plead and negotiate with them that we were only able to raise close to N30 million. After back and forth, they instructed us to come and receive a ‘message’ at a location in the night.

“But when we got there around past 10 pm, what we saw was shocking. Nabeeha and three other victims were brutally murdered and we have to go with our corpse and leave the other three bodies there who might also be victims of failed negotiation because we believe their people are also coming for them. It was a heatless scenario”.

Sherifdeen was further quoted as saying: “they later called and warned that they would be killing the rest of the siblings if the ransom which they have increased to N100m, N20m each for the five of them remaining is not met on the next deadline on Wednesday.

“They rejected the close to N30m that we took to them. They were furious and resulted in further insults and threats that we were even pleading with them for N65m or N70m which we don’t even have”.

……..Police vow to rescue victims

Meanwhile, spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has emphasised that the police and other security agencies had been on the matter to rescue the abducted persons.

In a statement, Adejobi said Kayode Egbetokun, the Inspector General, had directed that tactical intelligence units be expanded in order to combat kidnapping.

“In the wake of the abduction of six young girls in the Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, it is vital to state that the Police Force has already initiated a comprehensive plan of action. The Force Headquarters is diligently coordinating efforts to address this and prevent any further occurrence, as all hands are on deck to rescue the victims.

“However, the sensitivity of the situation necessitates discretion, and as a result, specific details are being kept confidential to avoid compromising ongoing operations.

“The NPF is actively engaging and contacting individuals crucial to the rescue operations and investigation. The objective is not only to bring perpetrators to justice but also to intensify efforts in rescue operations for victims still in captivity.”

…………..Pantami’s friend donates N50 to complete ransom

On Sunday, the Former Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Pantami, announced that an unnamed friend has donated N50 million ransom for the remaining abducted sisters of Al-Kadriyar family.

“Furthermore, I spoke with a friend and a brother who offered to pay the remaining 50 million Naira of the 60m immediately. I conveyed the account number of the father of pur daughters, Mansoor Al-Kadriyar, to the friend and brother to send the money directly. Any additional amount earlier generated from yesterday, the father can use to treat the daughters and other family members in sha Allah.”
