The Katsina police command have saved and rescued four prospective corpers abducted in Funtua, an area in Katsina State, on Monday March 9th, 2020.
The casualties, three boys and a lady, were traveling with their classmates from Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, to Zamfara State where they were assigned to serve for the one year compulsory NYSC program. The vehicle they paid for from Osun state, was pounced on and they were kidnapped.
The Nation reported that the assailants called the families of the victims around midnight on Tuesday March 10, 2020 demanding a N10m ransom. A father of one of the casualty said the kidnappers called with the similar phone number they used to call him the previous day.
“I just spoke with the Commissioner of Police now and he told me that all four have been rescued. I am thankful to the police for rescuing them. The kidnappers called again around midnight and this time, someone who could speak English was on the other end. They said I have to bring N10m for my child to be release. But I did not pay anything and they have been rescued. I am thankful that the children are safe and they are being taken to NYSC in Katsina” the parent disclosed.
