Bandits Kill Man After Ransom Delivery in Kaduna State


A tragic incident occurred in Jere town, Kaduna State, where bandits killed a 27-year-old man named Abba after he delivered a ransom of N16 million and three motorcycles for the release of nine kidnapped victims.

The abduction took place on April 16, 2024, in Unguwar Iya, Jere, where bandits kidnapped nine residents and initially demanded a N30 million ransom. Abba, who had been negotiating with the bandits, went to deliver the agreed-upon ransom last Saturday. According to local resident Shuaibu Hussaini, after collecting the ransom, the bandits' leader tied Abba with a rope and shot him.

One of the released victims revealed that the bandits killed Abba because their leader felt he had been rude during the ransom negotiations. The bandits later informed Abba’s family about his death and directed them to a location to retrieve his body.

The incident has plunged the entire Jere community into mourning, with widespread grief over Abba's death. The Kaduna State Police Command was yet to comment on the incident at the time of this report.
