Bandits free 29 Phone vendors in Zamfara

Following payment of an undisclosed sum, the 29 members of the Nigeria Cellphone Sellers and Repairers Association, Zamfara State section, who were kidnapped along the Sokoto-Gusau route last week, have been freed by the bandits.

According to ANAEDOONLINE, 55 members of the association were kidnapped last week while traveling back to Gusau after a wedding in Tambuwal, Sokoto State, where 26 people managed to flee.

Ashiru Zurmi, the association’s secretary, who confirmed that the 29 members were freed on Thursday night, said that a ransom was paid but would not say how much.

However, a member of the association who begged for anonymity told The PUNCH that N20 million was paid as ransom.

According to him, the bandits have demanded the sum of N140 million but after the negotiation, they agreed to collect N20 million.

”Initially, the bandits demanded N140 million but we told them that the amount was outrageous.”

“They later told us to bring N20 million as the last option or else they would kill them, as such we mobilised the amount and gave them.”

“We thank God that all of them are in good health and nobody lost his life as rumoured earlier”.
