Bandits Free Kidnapped Abuja Lady After Ransom
Bandits on Sunday released on ransom one of the seven victims kidnapped during last Tuesday night’s attack on the Kubwa Extension II Relocation Estate, along the Arab Road area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The freed victim, Adenike, is an ex-corps member who completed the mandatory National Youth Service Corps scheme in November.
It was gathered that an undisclosed sum was paid to the bandits to effect Adenike’s release from their den.
Adenike was kidnapped at her family home on Tuesday alongside six others during an attack that lasted about an hour, leaving two male adults killed.
The six other victims still in the kidnappers’ den are two male children, an older woman, and three male adults.
The bandits had requested a sum of N100m as a ransom for Adenike, and N60 million for the second lady.
Intelligence sources confirmed that though a ransom was paid for Adenike’s freedom, the sum was way less than the N100 million earlier requested by the bandits.
