The abductors of former Head of Department (HOD) of the Electoral and Electronics Engineering Department at Kaduna Polytechnic Hajiya Ramatu Abarshi and her daughter Ameera have demanded for N100m ransom for them and two other members of their team.
Hajiya Ramatu and her daughter were abducted near Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
They were returning from a programme where they provided relief items to the less privileged in Mariri town, Lere Local Government Area of Kaduna State, family members said.
“Kindly help us with your prayers because we don’t know from where to start sourcing for N100m,” said Abdallah Isma’il, a family member.
Abdallah, who was in the same vehicle with the former HOD before the abduction, said they earlier visited Tilden Kargiji village in Lere LGA where she distributed clothes to 40 orphans under her NGO Barkindo Rahama Initiative (BRAIN). “But on their way back, they were kidnapped,” he said.
“As fate would have it, I dropped from the vehicle to go to Ladduga to see our relations, only to hear about the abduction. She was taken alongside three members of her entourage, which included her daughter,” he added.
Isma’il also disclosed that they are still discussing with the abductors who have demanded N100m
