Kidnappers Kill Man Over Non-Payment Of Ransom

Kidnappers have shot dead a man, Jibrin Sule, over failure by his family to pay N3 million demanded by them. City News had reported that the deceased was abducted by gunmen last Tuesday at Wubo village along Yewuti-Awawa Road in Kwali Area Council.

A relative of the deceased who preferred anonymity confirmed the death, saying the kidnappers killed Sule on Saturday evening, even as the family was struggling to raise the ransom. He said the family members got wind of the death while trying to negotiate with the kidnappers to bring down the ransom to M1.5 million.

He further said:

“It was during negotiation that it was discovered that they had already killed Jibrin, but they still wanted to collect the ransom.” He said the family members immediately engaged some vigilante members to go into the forest in search of the corpse, adding that, “Even as I am talking right now, the vigilante members are still in the bush searching for his corpse while the kidnappers’ phone is no longer connecting.”
