Armed men suspected to be bandits have kidnapped four people in the Kolo village of Gusau Local Government Area in Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria. The bandits who initially demanded N10million as ransom have agreed to receive N5million in new naira notes.

While the residents made frantic efforts to gather money through communal effort, the abductors sent a message on Tuesday that they would not release the abducted victims until the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) issues the new notes.
