In the wake of the Coronavirus lockdown, a woman, her three children and a neighbour in Farin Gada, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State have been Kidnapped.
Elanza News reports that despite the lockdown, gunmen have been terrorising communities in Chikun and other parts of Kaduna state.
After the kidnap of the woman, her neighbour who visited the house to sympathize with the family, Rebecca, decided to sleep over but was also taken away with three children.
The kidnappers are still demanding for N300,000 on Rebecca.
Residents say the kidnappers demanded for N2 million but the family was able to raised N500,000.
The man who took the money to the kidnappers was also kidnapped for ransom before he was later released after payment.
The total number of people that are still being held by the kidnappers are now five.
After so much plea, it was gathered that the woman that was first Kidnapped, regain her freedom because she was very sick.
“They released her because she has been sick to the extent that they could not keep her any longer,” a resident said adding that another woman, the three children are still under captivity.
According to residents, efforts are on going to rescue the remaining persons if more money is gathered.
