Bandits have abducted a mother and daughter as well as a commercial driver conveying them to Kaduna after a humanitarian service at Mariri community in Lere Local Government Area of the State.
It was gathered that Eng. Ramatu Abarshi and her daughter who were traveling in a chattered vehicle were said to have been kidnapped near Kasuwan Magani.
Sources from Mariri told our correspondent that as part of her Barkindo-Rahama Initiative, the Engineer who often distribute household items to the less privileged, had arrived Mariri around 3pm on Friday.
It was gathered that she had distributed cloth and other basic items to orphans ahead of the Eid-el- Fitr celebration.
“She exchanged pleasantries with dozens of people in Mariri and posed for pictures with many people before they left in the evening,” the source said.
However, somewhere between ‘Crossing and Kasuwan Magani,’ their vehicle was said to have been attacked by bandits who abducted all three including the driver.
A family friend told our correspondent that the bandits have made contact and demanded N100million for the release of Engineer Ramatu and her daughter.
