Three out of those kidnapped from Ungwan Bulus have been executed by terrorists on Monday night, with threats of killing more by 12noon Monday, if their demands are not met.

The Chief of Ungwan Bulus, Gideon Haruna Goni confirmed this to newsmen who visited his palace on Tuesday April 19.

He said that the terrorists called the community to inform that they should go and pick corpses of those killed around Dutse Community, along the Kaduna-Abuja highway.

He said that the terrorists called that if they don’t pay the N20m before 12pm on Tuesday (April 19, 2022), others would be assassinated.

“They have threatened to kill more, especially women if their demands are not met. 26 were abducted, one was released, three were killed.

“The one that was released was based on health grounds. He has liver problem,” the Chief said.

The Chief while speaking, said that on March 31, the bandits invaded the community around 8pm, shot and killed two people, while 26 were abducted.

“We came together as a community, raised some amount and they called us and told us to pick corpses of victim’s from Dutse.

“I am appealing to them not to kill anyone, we are appealing to the state and federal government as well as religious clerics to come to our rescue so that the killings will stop.

One of those whose family members were kidnapped, said that they have been able to raise N7m, but the terrorists insist on the N20m or they will keep killing the victims.
