Bandits who abducted seven individuals, including a pregnant woman, from Kuduru community near Bwari area council in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have tragically claimed the life of one of their captives.

According to reports, the victim, Olayinka Ogunyemi, was killed by the abductors on Friday after their demand for N290 million ransom went unmet.

A community source revealed, “They called us yesterday that they have killed engineer Olayinka Ogunyemi. They told us that they will kill the rest if we don’t bring N230 million.”

The remaining captives include a one and a half-year-old boy, two siblings, the pregnant woman, and two men. The bandits have threatened to end their lives if the ransom is not paid.

“We are scared and helpless now that they will not kill the pregnant woman and her child, the two siblings, and the two men,” the source added.

He urged the government, police, and army to intensify efforts to rescue the hostages, as the bandits have expressed grievances against Nigeria and vowed retaliation.
