A 400 level student of Sule Lamido University, Jigawa State, Northwest Nigeria was Monday morning abducted from her residence by some gunmen.

The victim is Zainab Isa Zakari Bosuwa.

According to her sister, Hafsat Bosuwa, the abduction took place at about 1am on Monday.

“The gunmen scaled the fence to our house through our neighbor’s compound after threatening him with a gun,” Hafsat said.

“It was about 1 am in the morning when we heard some people burgling our windows, because the doors could not be broken.”

“They stole some money from our daddy’s room and snatched our phones, the kidnappers gathered all of us and Kidnapped our elder sister after asking about our elder brothers who are not residing in Jigawa.”

Eyewitness accounts said that two policemen chased after the kidnappers immediately they left but one of them was shot dead by the kidnappers.

Hafsat said the kidnappers had called the family to request for a ransom of N50 million to secure the release of Zainab.

“At about 1pm today, the kidnappers called requesting for N50 million ransom for the release of Zainab,” Hafsat said.
