Bandits have Killed Three Zamfara Traders and released 9 Others after collecting N6m and brand new motorbikes from them.
According to reports, about 13 traders from the Dansadau community were abducted three weeks ago while travelling on an 18-seater bus going from Mashayar Zaki along the Gusau-Dansadau road, 82 km north of Gusau.
Four days later, the detainees contacted the victims’ families and demanded a ransom of N80 million for their release.
Alhaji Yau Dansadau, the brother of one of the traders, said that they managed to reduce the ransom to N10 million after hard negotiations.
“About N10 million was found on the traders and was carted away by the abductors. After N5 million was delivered to them, they released 2 of the kidnapped victims with a promise to release the rest the following day. The freed victims can’t walk following severe injuries they sustained on their legs after they were chained for many days,”
“They carried the victims on motorbikes and brought them to Hannu Tara area just 2km north of the very spot they kidnapped them. The victims are now responding to treatment at a medical facility. One of the kidnapped victims called Ali Laudi told us that three of them couldn’t survive as they died in kidnappers’ custody,” he added.
One of the victims, Bello Dansadau, narrating the incident said that they were blindfolded and chained for all the days they spent in the kidnappers’ den and could not walk because of the severe injuries on their legs.
“We really saw hell; it was a terrible moment for us. Even when we are going to ease ourselves, we would be asked to go blindfolded. I will not wish this condition even for my enemy,” Bello said.
