Abductors of Zamfara medical doctor demand N20m ransom

The kidnappers of Dr. Mansur Muhammed, Medical Director of Dansadau General Hospital in Zamfara State’s Maru local government area, have demanded a N20 million ransom to release the victim.

Last Saturday, Muhammed and two hospital employees were kidnapped near the Mashayar Zaki community on the Magami-Dansadau road.

Dr. Mannir Bature, Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in the state, confirmed the development to journalists on Wednesday in Gusau, saying the association was working to secure the medical director’s release.

He said: “The abductors of Dr. Mansur Muhammad, the Medical Director, General Hospital Dansadau, have demanded N20 million ransom for his release.

“They made contact with his family to demand the sum of N20 million ransom before they could release him.

“They, however, reduced the amount to N5 million. We are still on it.

“The leadership of the NMA is working with relevant authorities to ensure the safe release of the victim.”
