Barely 48 hours after gunmen invaded the Zamfara College of Agriculture, in Bakura Local Government Area of the state, the abductors have demanded a ransom of N350 Million.
Speaking with newsmen, the provost of the college, Alhaji Habibu Mainasara said the abductors have reached him and demanded the sum of Three Hundred and Fifty Million Naira as a ransom for the students and staff in their captivity.
“They said that the money must be paid before they can release the staff and the students they kidnapped in my school,” Habibu added.
It was gathered that a police officer and three security officials were killed during the incident that happened on Sunday night.
The state police command has however expressed shock over the recent development as they are not aware of the demand for a ransom. The spokesperson of the state command, Mohammed Shehu, said: “We are not aware of this development but we are doing our best to rescue the kidnapped victims.”
