Days after receiving the sum of N8.5 million for the release of some Abuja residents, the kidnappers have demanded an extra two brand new motorcycles.
Recall that the abductors had forcefully taken no fewer than 23 persons from Kawu community on December 26, 2023.
Four among them had escaped, leaving behind 19 others in captivity.
The bandits were said to have threatened to kill the remaining 11 over delayed ransom.
Speaking on Friday, a family member of one of the victims, Bala Dantani, said a sum of N5 million was raised and handed over to the bandits after they threatened to kill the captives two weeks ago.
According to him, another N3.8 million was taken to the bandits on Tuesday, including food stuff and drugs as well as wines, after the leader had promised to release the victims.
“And while waiting for their calls to tell us locations where to pick the victims on that Tuesday, the man who took the ransom to them came back that the bandits were again demanding for two motorcycles before they will release the remaining 11 victims,” he said, according to DailyTrust.
