Four female captives, including a student from Zamfara State College of Arts and Science have raised an alarm over their captors’ threat to marry them off if their parents fail to pay a 12 million naira ransom.
The abductions occurred approximately six months ago when the victims were returning from a wedding along the Birnin Magaji-Kaura Namoda Road.
In a video lasting two minutes and 19 seconds, which was obtained by newsmen over the weekend, the captives revealed the dire situation they are facing and the ransom demands made by the abductors.
The kidnappers have given their families a one-week ultimatum to pay the ransom.
According to one of the victim’s elder brothers, six of the girls were kidnapped initially, but two of them were released after a ransom of 6 million naira was paid.
The remaining four captives are now seeking assistance from the state government and the citizens to secure their release from this harrowing ordeal.
The situation highlights the ongoing security challenges and danger faced by individuals in the region due to banditry and kidnapping.
