Kidnappers Dump Dead Bodies Of Abducted Students in Abuja


Kidnappers’ free reign has apparently continued in the Federal Capital Territory as four out the 10 persons kidnapped in Kubwa/Dutse area of the territory have been found killed and dumped at Ida, nea Ushafa in Bwari Area Council.

Among the bodies were that of a secondary school student and daughter of Ekiti State-born Chief Legal Officer of the National University Commission (NUC), Folorunsho Ariyo, and a 400 level student of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria, Nabeeeha Al-kadriyar.

Miss Ariyo was abducted along with her mother and three siblings two Sundays ago while Nabeeeha Al-kadriyar was seized with her father and five of her female siblings last Tuesday in the same axis.

Family sources said that the kidnappers had demanded for the sum of N60 million ransom to release members of the Ariyo family who could only raise about N5 million.

“Talks were still ongoing and as at last Friday, we were optimistic of a positive outcome until we were contacted to pick up her body,” a family source volunteered.

The teenage girl was buried on Sunday in Dutse Cemetery, Abuja while the other members of the family remain with their abductors.

It was learned that the kidnappers who invaded Al-kadriyar’s residence at Zuma 1, near Bwari at about 9pm last Tuesday, also took away her father and her sisters and demanded the sum of N100 million ransom for their release but later dropped it to N60 million.

A source who gave an account of the incident, said: “On Tuesday 2nd of January around 9:00 pm kidnappers struck and took away a father and her six children (all girls) at Zuma 1 after Bwari FCT before Veritas University.

“The junior brother that was contacted on distressed call died during the attack. The father was released 48hrs after to bring N60m ransom.

“We were contacted last night Friday 12th Jan around 7pm to bring the money and later called around 10:30pm same night telling us they have killed one of the girls and even described the location for us to pick the corpse.

“While were we at the point of picking up the corpse, they called again raising the ransom of N100m insisting that any attempt in delaying the payment will be met with equal treatment. These are the phone numbers being used by the abductors:  07016250005 0912 391 5983.”
