Terrorists who kidnapped a bride have issued out a threat to remarry her if a ransom was not quickly paid for her release and other 62 women abducted alongside with her last week in Sabuwa Local Government Area of Katsina State.
Penpushing reports that the bandits made the threat in a video release to the world which surfaced on social media on Tuesday with guns slung across the shoulders of three or more of the victims, including a young girl clad in a navy-blue Hijab, while one of the terrorists was in a police uniform while another one donned military camouflage
“Let’s see if there is anyone who can rescue them without paying ransom. They are here, you can see them. You people should stop lying that they are 50, we have 63 of them with us including their driver. Look at the bride. This is the bride, we are going to remarry her off if ransom is not paid’ , one of the terrorists in the background said in Hausa
Penpushing further reports that in the video the victims spoke, begging their family members and the public to rescue them by paying the ransom while the terrorists pressurised them to be more audible in their request.
The women it is recalled were members of a wedding procession abducted by the terrorists last Thursday evening around Gamji in Damari while escorting the bride to her matrimonial home and have since being in captivity.
Penpushing also reports that the family of the bride while lamenting over the ugly development said the terrorists are demanding N100 million ransom for all the captives, saying that none of the family members have ever seen such huge amount
The uncle to the bride said he clearly told the terrorists that the family could not afford such amount, adding that the bandits said they did the video to show the Governor how serious they are and dare the him
‘They said they did that video to show the governor how serious they are. They said the governor vowed that security agents would rescue them. I personally appreciate him (Governor Dikko Radda) for showing his concerns because he came here to sympathise with us and promised that they would be rescued’, Abdullahi said.
Penpushing reports that he said aside from the bride, eight of his sisters and nine daughters were among those abducted, and in similar vein, another person, who identified himself as Zubairu, said his wife, six children and 13 relatives were among those abducted, adding that they have resorted to praying as the only option for the family
