Nigeria: Gunmen abduct nine Kogi travellers, demand N2.6m ransom

By Zuleihat Owuiye, Mamos Nigeria

The news of the abduction of nine travellers in Kogi State is indeed distressing. It’s alarming to hear about such incidents of violence and insecurity affecting innocent individuals. The fact that the victims included students, women, and men highlights the indiscriminate nature of these criminal acts.

The demand for ransom by the kidnappers adds another layer of concern to the situation. It’s a relief to know that negotiations have led to a reduction in the initial ransom demand. The emotional account of Elupo Eliazer, whose wife is among the victims, sheds light on the human impact of such tragic events.

The involvement of the state Police Public Relations Officer in the matter signifies efforts being made to address the situation. Let’s hope for a swift and safe resolution to this distressing ordeal and for the safe return of the abducted individuals to their families.
