Niger school abduction: Bandits demand N110 million ransom

The bandits who are responsible for the kidnap of students in Niger state have revealed that they have 156 pupils with them, as they demanded N110 million for their release.

Over 200 students of an Islamic school located at Tegina in the Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State were kidnapped a few days ago.

The attack happened on Sunday, May 30 around 4:30 pm, and one person was reportedly shot dead while another is critically injured.

The bandits contacted the school headmaster, Alhaji Abubakar Alhassan, around 4 pm on Monday, asking him to pay N110m as a ransom for the release of his pupils.

Speaking to journalists on the telephone on Tuesday, Alhassan said the kidnappers threatened that if they did not pay the ransom by the end of today (Wednesday), they would kill all the children.

Alhassan said the message had been passed to the state government, which said it would not pay any ransom.
