A Zamfara state businessman, Alhaji Aminu Jangeme, who fled after he was kidnapped by bandits last year has been re-abducted.
The businessman, popularly known as Sarki, was last year abducted with six others in his village.
While negotiation on the payment of ransom for release was ongoing, he escaped and fled to Gusau, the state capital with members of his family.
The businessman, who did not know that the kidnappers were still looking for him, returned to the village where the kidnappers abducted him again.
Jangeme was reportedly re-abducted on his farm on the Gusau-Dansadau road by the suspected kidnappers on Thursday.
Alhaji Aminu Jangeme’s elder brother, Malam Adili, who confirmed the incident, expressed fear of the re-abduction of his brother who the kidnappers had been looking for since he fled.
According to him, “They (bandits) had been trying to abduct him again since the time he escaped and now that he is in their hands, nobody can tell when they will release him.”
