Bandits murdered a kidnapped victim after demanding N1 million from his relatives.
In February, bandits entered the victim’s home in Rigachikun, Igabi Local Government Area, and seized him along with others, including a bride-to-be.
During the invasion, a customs officer from FOU Zone B, Kaduna was shot and died in hospital.
An eyewitness informed Daily Trust that the man died Tuesday night after his family paid the ransom to the kidnappers.
“They shot him after paying the individual who brought the money to them. “The news of his demise shocked everyone,” she stated.
The victim was buried at Unguwar Shanu, his hometown. It was also reported that the bride-to-be and another individual remain captive.
