“You know, the three of them were sleeping in one room. It was a strange sound that one of the brothers heard and decided to open the door to find out what was happening. They started shooting into the air and by then, they already held the sisters,” he said.

“Actually, a contact was established this afternoon, just at about 30 minutes ago, they were demanding for N100 million ransom, but negotiation is still ongoing,” he further stated.

The Chairman of Kogi-Koton Karfe Council, Isah Abdulkarim, confirmed the incident but said he was yet to get details about the kidnap incident.
