Sanusi Halilu Zamfara

Bandit terrorists have murdered a lecturer at the Abdu Gusau Polytechnic in Zamfara State, Sanusi Halilu Kaura, after collecting ransom of N5m from his family.

It was gathered that the deceased was abducted over a month ago along the Kaduna-Abuja highway while heading to Abuja for NYSC mobilization of the polytechnic students.

The terrorists were said to have demanded the payment of N5m ransom for the freedom of the academician.

A family source who spoke with newsmen said the money was paid to the bandits on Tuesday in a bush near some villages along Kaduna-Zaria road, in Kaduna State.


The bandits confirmed his death less than 24 hours after the payment of the ransom, an indication that he was killed long ago even when negotiations for his release were on.

Meanwhile gunmen on Thursday kidnapped the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, CSP Haruna Adulmalik.
