The abductors of 17 persons at Kawu village in Bwari Area Council of the FCT have threatened to kill the remaining 11 victims being held over delay to pay their ransom money and a brand-new Bajaj motorcycle by their families.

City & Crime had reported that bandits invaded Kawu on January 11, 2024, and whisked away 18 persons, including a couple, children of the District Head of Kawu and a female nurse.

However, the bandits on Monday, January 22, 2024, freed four of the victims after N5m was given to them and held back 11 of them in their captivity.

Speaking with our reporter on Sunday, a family member of four of the victims, Bala Danjuma, said the bandits’ leader called on Saturday morning and threatened to kill the remaining 11 victims over delay in paying their ransom.

The spokeswoman of the FCT Police Command, SP Adeh Josephine, was yet to reply to an SMS sent to her phone.
