ZAMFARA BANDITS ABDUCT FOUR VILLAGERS, DEMAND NEW NAIRA NOTES FOR RANSOM
Bandits have abducted four people in the Kolo village of Gusau Local Government Area in Zamfara State and refused to collect old naira notes as ransom.
The four persons who were abducted by the suspected bandits include: one man, one woman and two children who are orphans.
The information available indicates that the bandits earlier demanded N10m as ransom but after the negotiation, they agreed to collect N5m.
In a bid to get the money through communal effort, the abductors sent a message on Tuesday 22 November 2022 that they would not release the kidnapped victims until the release of the new naira notes by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Meanwhile, the bandtis noted they would keep the abducted persons in their camps until next month December when the new naira notes would have circulated.
