Bandits now negotiating with residents who kidnapped their wives

Typical bandits

In a bizzare twist, bandits, whose wives and other relatives were kidnapped by residents of a Zamfara community are now negotiating with the community’s leaders on how to get their abducted wives and relatives back.

What is not clear is whether Police authorities are part of the reversed negotiations, because always, it was the residents who would be negotiating with the bandits on how much ransom they would need to pay to get their kidnapped relatives back.

Residents of Birnin Magaji in Zamfara State had abducted family members of bandits in retaliation of a recent kidnapping in the area.

A youth leader told PRNigeria that the bandits had kidnapped some community members while they were working in the farm.

“The armed bandits invaded the farm and threatened the farmers before they took them away.

“These days many people here cannot go to the farm and even in our home we are afraid they could come and abduct us for ransom.

PRNigeria gathered that in retaliation, youths in the community intercepted wives of the bandits including a pregnant woman who were on transit.

It further gathered that a negotiation is currently ongoing between the community leaders and bandits’ kingpins towards resolving the stalemate.

PRNigeria could not confirm if police are involved in the negotiations.
