Kidnapped Katsina girl freed after ‘ransom’

The 11-year-old girl, who was kidnapped last week by armed gunmen in Katsina State, has regained freedom after payment of an undisclosed ransom, sources told Daily Trust.

Nana Usman is the daughter of a businessman Mansur Abubakar based in Malumfashi.

A close family associate who confided in our reporter said the abductors had earlier called the businessman thrice asking for N100m as condition for his daughter’s release.

The source said an uncle of the girl negotiated the payment but the family was keeping it close to their heart.

Nana was kidnapped at about 11.30 pm last week when gunmen on motor bikes and cars stormed the family house before carting her away.

When contacted the spokesman of the Katsina State Police Command DSP Gambo Isah promised to get details.
