Terrorists killed three out of the 26 people kidnapped from Ungwan Bulus on Monday night, threatening to kill others by noon if their demands are not met.

Gideon Haruna Goni, the Chief of Ungwan Bulus, verified this to reporters who visited his palace on Tuesday, April 19.

According to him, the terrorists called the community and told them to go pick up the bodies of those killed near Dutse Community on the Kaduna-Abuja route.

He claimed that the terrorists threatened to assassinate others if they did not pay the N20 million by 12 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19, 2022.

“They have threatened to kill more, especially women if their demands are not met. 26 were abducted, one was released, three were killed.

“The one that was released was based on health grounds. He has liver problem,” the Chief said.

The Chief while speaking, said that on March 31, the bandits invaded the community around 8pm, shot and killed two people, while 26 were abducted.

“We came together as a community, raised some amount and they called us and told us to pick corpses of victim’s from Dutse.

“I am appealing to them not to kill anyone, we are appealing to the state and federal government as well as religious clerics to come to our rescue so that the killings will stop.

One of those whose family members were kidnapped, said that they have been able to raise N7m, but the terrorists insist on the N20m or they will keep killing the victims.
