A former councilor in Tsafe local government area of Zamfara Hon. Tanimun ‘Yanware who was kidnapped by some suspected gunmen along Zamfara state border with Katsina is yet to be released from captivity.
He was kidnapped together with one of his friend Ashiru Sani while they were coming back from a business trip at Dandume in the neighboring Katsina state.
Two months after his abduction, his kidnappers had refused to release him despite several efforts made by some concerned relations.
This medium has reliably gathered that, the abductors of the former council ADC Sole Administrator had been identified as they operate along the Katsina forest.
A family source anonymously informed this medium that, one of the repentant bandit leaders Ado Alieru had tried to reach out to the leaders of the gang but they refused because of the involvement of his involvement ( Aleiru).
“They refused to release the former Councilor and his friend Ashiru Sani because of the involvement of Mr Ado Alieru. They told us categorically that, they are not in good terms with Mr. Ado Alieru and they will not release the abductees because of his involvement” the relations added.
But recently according to another source, the kidnappers had open up for discussion hence they requested the sum of Six Million Naira as well as Boxer motorcycle be provided for them before they are able to get the abductees released.
He noted that, the former ADC council Sole Administrator is currently ill and required an urgent medical intervention before things get out of hand.
He stated the relations of the abductees are working toward fulfilling the terms provided by the kidnappers so that they can get the two abductees released and re-united with their families.
