Panic As Bandits Demand N10m To Release Victim’s Corpse

The victim’s brother, Kefas Obadiah, claimed the bandits had amassed N3 million but had still held on to the body of the person they had kidnapped in October. In Kaduna State, some robbers have demanded something absurd.

Before releasing the body of Obadiah Ibrahim, one of their victims who was abducted a few weeks ago in Kaduna State, they sought N10 million in ransom.

The victim’s brother, Kefas Obadiah, claimed the bandits had amassed N3 million but had still held on to the body of the person they had kidnapped in October.

On Thursday, they told us that Ibrahim had passed away on Monday. We requested his corpse, and they demanded N10 million from us; else, they wouldn’t do the task for us, he claimed.

“My brother’s name is Obadiah Ibrahim,” Obadiah said as he described the family’s suffering. Early in October, while returning from Abuja to Kaduna, he was abducted in Sabon Gaya.

There was a negotiator present, despite the fact that I wasn’t the one speaking to the robbers. Before settling for N3 million more, the bandits had sought N200 million.

We should bring the money, they replied. After we paid the ransom, they explained that the money was for their remaining food, and we should go.

“They eventually settled on N5 million and three motorcycles, and they subsequently collected one bike. We lost contact with them when they picked up a bike. Unfortunately, despite our efforts, we were unable to speak with them (too).

Then, on Thursday, when the mediator phoned them, they reported that our brother had passed away. We believed they were making fun of us. They threatened to find him and come after him but we persisted if he didn’t stop calling their line.

After being arrested by the police and shackled to a tree, they reported that their own men had been killed. They vented their resentment toward our brother as a result of what the police did to their brother.

The bandits also spoke the Arabic word “Allah,” promising to free the corpse in three days if we handed them money.
