Bandits Free Kadpoly lecturer, withhold daughter, driver

A lecturer with the Kaduna State Polytechnic (Kadpoly), Ramatu Abarshi, an engineer, has regained freedom a month after she was abducted alongside her daughter and a commercial driver conveying them to Kaduna.

Daily Trust, however, gathered that the bandits are still holding on to the daughter identified as Ameerah, and the driver.

A family source who did not want to be quoted confirmed the release of the lecturer but declined to comment if a ransom was paid.

The source said, “We are just happy that at least she is back. What we are focusing on now is how to secure the release of the others still in captivity.”

Daily Trust had reported how the lecturer and her daughter travelling in a chartered vehicle were kidnapped by bandits near Kasuwan Magani in Kajuru LGA after they rendered humanitarian service at Mariri community in Lere LGA of Kaduna State on April 24.
