Residents of the Angwan Bulus community in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State are in great fear, following threats by bandits to kill some of those kidnapped recently because of the failure of their relatives to pay the ransom demanded.
There has been so much fear, due to the killing of three out of the 26 kidnapped victims by bandits on Monday night, as they
threatened to kill more of the hostages, especially women, if the N20m ransom they demanded was not paid.
Confirming this, the Chief of Angwan Bulus community, Gideon Goni, told newsmen that, the bandits informed the community to go and pick up the corpses of those they killed.
According to the monarch, the bandits killed the victims around the Dutse community, along the Kaduna-Abuja expressway.
“The one that was released was based on health grounds. He has a liver disease.”
The monarch recalled that the bandits on March 31, 2022, invaded the community, killed two residents and abducted 26 persons.
