Unknown gunmen have abducted a female teacher at a government secondary school, Kuje, Abuja.
It was gathered that the victim, Mrs Daramola Onyeaka Matina, was abducted inside her residence at Shadadi community in Kuje Local Council, a family member of the victim who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the incident happened in the early hours of Tuesday.
“They gained access into her residence through the back door. They used a sledge harmer and axe to destroy the door, while others stood outside and surrounded the house. She was whisked away at gunpoint,” he said
He said the family has been able to establish contact with her abductors who are demanding N10 million ransom.
“Actually, a contact was established with her abductors late evening of Tuesday, they were demanding N10 million ransom, even though, negotiation is still ongoing,” he said.
The development was confirmed by the Kuje branch secretary of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Comrade Shamaki Nathan Magaji
The big question now is, will the family of the abducted let their loved one to remain with the kidnappers and be either killed or released at their mercy or they will sort for money for the ransom?
Recall that, earlier on, the Nigerian legislature has said the families of the victim to kidnappers should not pay a ransom of freedom or risked been jailed.
It’s really a serious problem at this moment .
