The bandits who kidnapped nine persons, including a serving councillor of Yar Tsakuwa in Rabah local government area of Sokoto State, have demanded a ransom of N60 million.
A resident, Nazifi Abdullahi, told our reporter that the bandits called the families of the abductees and asked them to raise the money.
“And when they (relatives of the abductees) asked for discount, they switched off the phone. We don’t know how they can raise such amount because I know one of the abductees who finds it difficult to provide for his family.”
“In fact, he and his family have been living in a borrowed house since their house collapsed some months back,” Abdullahi said.
Daily Trust reports that the bandits invaded the village around 12 midnight on Saturday and operated till 3am.
They ransacked houses and shops, robbing locals of their belongings, including motorcycles, food stuff and assorted drugs.
The miscreants, who had initially abducted 20 persons, released some before marching others to their camps.
