Bandits Threaten To Marry Abducted Bride And Sell Off 62 Wedding Guests In Katsina State

The recent abduction of women accompanying a bride to her matrimonial home at Damari, Sabuwa LGA of Katsina State has taken a disturbing turn, with the bandits releasing a video showing the captives.

In the video, the bandits threatened to tie the wedding knot between the already married lady and one of them, unless a ransom of N100 million is paid.

They also vowed to sell off the ’62 wedding guests’ that were kidnapped alongside the bride if their demands were not met. The captives, including children, were ambushed at Sabuwa while traveling in an open van, and the bandits are demanding the ransom for their release.

The Katsina State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Dr. Nasiru Mu’azu Danmusa, stated that government officials had met with security agents and were devising ways of rescuing the captives unharmed, urging the relatives of the captives to exercise patience.

The police spokesman in Katsina, ASP Abubakar Sadiq Aliyu, has been contacted for a reaction but has not yet responded.
