Abductors of Rarara’s mother demand N900m ransom

Story from Uji A. ILIYASU

Abductors of Rarara’s mother, Hajiya Hauwa’u Adamu, have demanded N900m for her release.

A source close to the family in Kahutu, who craved anonymity, told journalists that the abductors of the elderly woman called the family and initially demanded N1bn ransom.

“They called the family with a phone of a woman the bandits collected when they came to pick up Hajiya.

They demanded N1bn but after a brief discussion with a member of the family, they reduced the amount to N900m.

“At first, they demanded to seal the deal with Rarara himself because he felt sick following the abduction of his mother. They agreed to strike the deal with a member of the family.

They confirmed to the family that Hajiya is in good condition and that she would be released as soon as the money is paid.

“The discussion between the bandits and family was very brief and since then they have not called again. But I believe the negotiation is still on. So, the family is still waiting for the bandits’ call to continue with negotiation.”

Narrating how the mother of the famous singer was abducted, the source said the operation was a well-coordinated one, adding that the bandits came along with Hajiya’s photograph in order not to pick the wrong person.

“We learnt that after they gained access into her bedroom, they woke up all the women that were sleeping together with her and started comparing their faces with the photograph.

“After they finally identified her, they asked for money and she showed them money in her bedside drawer, however, it was too small.

They finally told her that they will go with her and without any hesitation, Hajiya complied with their directives,” the source said.

The source added that the entire Kahutu village were in shock following the unfortunate kidnapping of the elderly woman whom he said was generous to many families in the village.

“Hajiya is like a mother for all in this village. She has sponsored the marriage of many underprivileged families and orphans in Kahutu village and environs.

Nobody in this village has not enjoyed her generosity. Nobody will go to Hajiya with his problem and return not having it solved. Everybody can testify to this.”
