Boko Haram terrorists have demanded N28 million as a ransom for the 52 residents of Kwapre community in Hong Local Council in Adamawa State, who were abducted a month ago in a raid.
During the deadly raid, many houses and other properties were destroyed. Majority of the abductees were women and children.
The Head of Kwapre, Joel Kulaha, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to help rescue the abductees, noting that the villagers were hamstrung by finance.
“We have lost almost everything to the attack,” he lamented.
All the ward heads of Kwapre, Sabon Gari, Kwapre Central, Hayin Rafi and Unguwan Masalaci appreciated Governor Umaru Fintiri for sending the House of Assembly Speaker, Aminu Abbas, to condole them.
They urged the governor to do everything possible to secure the release of their relations, saying: “Our situation calls for concern and immediate intervention.”
