Posted by Samuel on Sat 24th Feb, 2024 - tori.ng

The bandits who abducted seven persons, including a pregnant woman, also threatened to kill the remaining captives if the N290 million ransom is not raised.

In what will come across as a really heartbreaking development, bandits have killed one out of seven persons who were kidnapped from Kuduru community in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, on December 28, 2023.

The bandits who abducted seven persons, including a pregnant woman, also threatened to kill the remaining captives if the N290 million ransom is not raised.

A community source revealed that the bandits called on Friday to break the news of the execution of Olayinka Ogunyemi, a civil engineer, after members of the families of the hostages failed to pay the N290 million demanded.

The source said they threatened to kill the remaining captives, including one and half year-old boy, two siblings, the pregnant woman and two men.

“They called us yesterday that they have killed Engineer Olayinka Ogunyemi. They told us that they will kill the rest if we don’t bring N290 million.

“We have already paid N23 million and sent food and other items they demanded but none of our people have been released.

“We are scared and helpless now that they will not kill the pregnant woman and her child, the two siblings and the two men.

“We are appealing to the federal government, the police and the army to step up efforts to rescue our people because their abductors said Nigeria has offended them and they would retaliate,”
the source said.

He gave the names of those being held as Godwin Rachel Adeoye, Godwin Dominic, Austin Buremo, Hassan Usman, Hassan faosiya and Bako Azeez.
