Bandits have abducted an Engineer, Hajiya Dr. Ramatu Sangei and her daughter, Amira in Kaduna State. 

Mother and daughter were kidnapped alongside a commercial driver conveying them to Kaduna after a humanitarian service at Mariri community in Lere Local Government Area of the State on Friday, April 22. 

It was gathered that the Engineer who often distribute household items to the less privileged, as part of her Barkindo-Rahama Initiative, had arrived Mariri around 3pm on Friday.

She distributed cloth and other basic items to orphans ahead of the Eid-el- Fitr celebration before they left in the evening. 

However, somewhere between ‘Crossing and Kasuwan Magani, their vehicle was said to have been attacked by bandits who abducted all three including the driver.

A family friend told Daily Trust that the bandits have made contact and demanded N100million for the release of Engineer Ramatu and her daughter. 

One Nuhu Ibrahim, who confirmed the incident said Dr Ramatu was a former H.O.D of Electrical Engineering Department, Kaduna Polytechnic.
