No fewer than 4 persons, consisting of a man, woman and two children have again been abducted in Kolo village, in the Gusau Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

It was gathered that following the victims’ abduction, the gunmen demanded N10m ransom and rejected the old naira notes.

An indigene in the area, Mohammed Ibrahim, said the bandits later reduced the ransom to N5m, adding that people in the village had been trying to raise the money to secure the safe release of the victims.

“As we were trying to gather the money demanded by the terrorists, they sent another message this morning that they would not collect old naira notes.

“They said they would keep the abducted persons in their camps until the release of the new naira notes in December,” Ibrahim said.
