“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,” he said.

He said negotiation was still ongoing, even as he commended some army personnel for their quick response to a distress call during the bandits’ attack in the community.

The spokeswoman of the FCT Police Command, SP Adeh Josephine, is yet to reply to a text message sent to her phone to confirm the ransom demand as at the time of filing the report on Sunday.
