Kidnappers Who Attacked Nigerian Army Estate In Abuja Demand N30million Ransom For Victims

The kidnappers of Barrister Cyril Adikwu’s wife and two in-laws, abducted from the Nigerian Army estate in Kurudu, Abuja, have allegedly issued a ransom demand exceeding N30 million.

The incident occurred when kidnappers infiltrated the estate on Thursday night around 10 pm and seized Adikwu’s wife and two in-laws.


Adikwu, who managed to escape when the kidnappers arrived at his residence in the estate, revealed that he was in contact with the abductors. They have reportedly stipulated a ransom amount of over 30 million naira, with a specified timeframe for payment.

Speaking with Vanguard, he said:-

“It all happened on Thursday night at about 10:00 pm when a vehicle containing those who were kidnapped drove into my compound, and then all of a sudden the kidnappers followed the vehicle into my compound.

“I was upstairs and heard strange sounds, so I peeped through the burglary door upstairs and saw one of them who was kidnapped on the floor. I asked what was going on there, and she said, ‘I don’t know, these men are asking me to go down, then it occurred to me they were kidnappers.

“Then I started screaming ‘Kidnappers help” at the top of my voice, at this point they started shooting at me upstairs; I was able to escape and then they started shooting guns in the air while they took the three of them away.

“There were about 8 of them, and they walked through the bush path over the hill to the other side, not up to 40 minutes later, they left; I was called to provide a ransom, I don’t want to mention the amount because already false information is everywhere in the media about the whole incident, but I can assure you it’s more than 30 million.

“I am traumatised right now after the whole incident, and the kidnappers have been calling me and have given me a time frame.”

One of the estate management officials who did not want to be mentioned said the estate management, in collaboration with security agencies, are working to rescue the kidnapped victims.


”The incident that happened on Thursday night in the estate was really unfortunate. We were alerted immediately, but before security personnel got there, the kidnappers had left with the victims. We assure you that we are working with security agencies to see that they are rescued unhurt.”
