Zamfara: Terrorists demand new naira notes for release of abductees

Suspected terrorists who kidnapped four persons in Kolo Village, in the Gusau Local government Area of Zamfara state, have demanded new naira notes for the ransom payment.

OURNIGERIA gathered that following the victims’ abduction, the suspects demanded N10m ransom and rejected the old naira notes.

An indigene in the area, Mohammed Ibrahim, said the bandits later reduced the ransom to N5m, adding that people in the village had been trying to raise the money to secure the safe release of the victims.

Ibrahim added that the kidnappers said they would keep the abducted persons in their camps until the release of the new naira notes in December.

Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Godwin Emefiele announced that president Muhammadu Bihari would unveil the new naira notes on Wednesday.
