Tragically, bandits have reportedly killed a young woman named Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar after kidnapping her and five other sisters in Abuja. The abduction occurred on January 9, and the victims included Nabeeha and her sisters, along with their father. While the father was eventually released, he was tasked with providing a substantial ransom of N60 million for the release of his children before Friday, January 12.

In an effort to raise the required amount, the family initiated fundraising activities and appealed for donations to a designated bank account. Unfortunately, as of Friday, they were unable to gather the specified sum, leading the bandits to allegedly carry out their threat and kill the eldest of the six girls, Nabeeha.

Former Minister for Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami, expressed his condolences and shared that he had spoken with the father of the kidnapped children. In a statement on Saturday night, he said, “Inna lil Laahi wa inna ilaiHi Raajiun! I just read about the killing of our daughter Najeeba (400 level, ABU). I also spoke with her father about the remaining 5 of our kidnapped daughters. May Allah forgive her, rescue others & bring absolute peace to Nigeria.”
