Terrorists have killed three out of 26 villagers abducted about a month ago at Ungwan Bulus, in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State for failing to pay a ransom of N20 million each to secure their release.
The victims were kidnapped by the terrorists on Monday, March 21, 2022.
‎The bandits executed three of the victims on Monday night and threatened to kill more by 12 noon on Tuesday if their demands were not met.
‎Chief of Ungwan Bulus, Gideon Haruna Goni who confirmed the killing of the three victims‎ to Daily Trust, said the bandits called to inform the community to pick up the corpses of the deceased victims around Dutse community along the Kaduna-Abuja highway.
The Chief said the corpses had been retrieved, adding that the bandits warned if the respective families failed to pay N20 million each for other captives before 12 pm on Tuesday (April 19, 2022), the other victims would be killed.
“We came together as a community, raised some amount and they called us and told us to pick corpses of victims from Dutse. They threatened to kill more, especially women if their demands are not met. Twenty-six were abducted, one was released, three were killed,” he said.
