Former Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Ali Pantami, announced that one of his friends has stepped forward to contribute N50 million towards the fundraising efforts for the ransom demanded by kidnappers for the release of the five sisters of the late Naheeba Al-Kadriyar, who was tragically killed by the abductors.

Nabeeha, along with her five sisters and their father, was abducted by kidnappers from their residence in the Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Unfortunately, Nabeeha was killed on Saturday by the kidnappers who had demanded a N60 million ransom for their release.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Sunday, Pantami, while expressing his reservations about victims paying ransom to criminals, acknowledged that Naheeba’s tragic death and the perilous situation of her remaining siblings make it imperative to pay the ransom. He stated, “I am personally not in support of paying ransom to criminals. However, since it becomes clear we lost our daughter Nabeeha yesterday, and the 5 remaining daughters have been threatened, as I spoke with the father on the matter yesterday and today.”

He concluded with a prayer for the well-being of the remaining daughters, gratitude for the donor, and a plea for divine intervention to end the security challenges in the country.
