Bandits demand N50m for seven Zamfara APC chairman’s abducted children

Bandits have demanded the sum of N50m for the seven kidnapped children of the children of the factional Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in the Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Alhaji Gyare Kadauri Sani.

The victims, Bashar, Abubakar, Haruna, Habibah, Sufyanu, Mubarak and Armiya, were kidnapped by bandits last Friday in Kadauri village.

Gyare said that the bandits called him and told him to provide the money or forget seeing his children again.

When asked if he had contacted the relevant authorities on the issue, Gyare said, “There is no need for me to see them since they are aware of what happened to me and nobody has sympathised with me.

He also lamented that the Chairman of the local government council, Alhaji Salisu Dangulbi, also did not reach out to him on the incident.

He noted that he could not raise the amount being demanded by the bandits even if he sold all his property, saying, “I explained this to the bandits on the phone but they only laughed at me.”

Gyare expressed disgust over the nonchalant attitude of the relevant authorities towards the protection of lives and property of Nigerians.

He said his children were kidnapped  without resistance from the security agents, who were alerted to what was happening in the village.

He, therefore, called on both the state and the federal governments to come to his aid and rescue his children.
