Suspected Kidnappers Demand N300m Ransom For The Release of 13 Residents Abducted in Abuja


A group of terrorists causing panic in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has demanded a ransom of N300 million for the release of 13 individuals kidnapped recently.

It could be recalled that the assailants abducted residents of Kurudu Extension, located in the Bwari Area Council of the FCT, last week.

The attack was extended to the nearby Azu village in Niger State.

Speaking with journalists earlier, the Madaki of Kuduru, Kure Zaphaniya, confirmed the ransom demand disclosing that the kidnapped victims were four children, and the abduction took place amidst sporadic shooting in the area.

“From my own community, which is Kuduru Extension, 13 people, including four children, were abducted by bandits. And the next day, the bandits’ leader called through a phone of one of the victims and demanded N300 million as a condition for the release of the victims,” Zaphaniya stated.


Despite acknowledging the swift response of certain army personnel to a distress call during the bandits’ assault in the community, he stated that negotiations were still in progress.

However, the FCT Police Command is yet to respond to the latest claims as of the time of filing this report.
