What’s the current situation of the kidnapping that happened in Abuja Nigeria?

Ah, yes, the abduction of the five sisters in Abuja was a shocking and tragic event that captured national attention. Here’s a closer look at it:

The Kidnapping:

  • On January 2nd, 2024, six sisters aged 13-23 and their father, Mansoor Al-Kadriyar, were taken hostage from their home in Bwari, a suburb of Abuja.

  • Armed men broke into the house and killed their uncle, who tried to intervene. Three police officers responding to the scene were also killed in a shootout.

  • Negotiations with the kidnappers ensued, with a ransom demand of 65 million naira ($68,000) set for the sisters’ release.

Tragic Turn:

  • Sadly, Nabeeha, the 21-year-old sister, was killed by the kidnappers as a warning when the ransom deadline passed.
  • Public outrage followed, with many Nigerians criticizing the government’s response to the rising insecurity in the region.
  • The remaining sisters remain in captivity, with their fate still uncertain.

Current Situation:

  • Nigerian Army has free all the kidnapped victims. 
  • A crowdfunding initiative has been launched to help raise the ransom money, garnering considerable support from Nigerians.
  • The Al-Kadriyar family continues to appeal for the safe return of their daughters.

This case highlights the severity of the kidnapping problem in Nigeria, particularly in Abuja and surrounding areas. While the five sisters’ case gained significant attention, numerous other abductions occur across the country, often underreported and overshadowed.
