The Kuchi community in Munya Local Government Area of Niger state has secured the release of 40 out of the 150 people abducted by terrorists three weeks ago.

This was achieved by giving the terrorists six Honda motorcycles, each worth N1.2 million, and N2 million in cash.

The released victims are mostly women and children.

The terrorists have now demanded another six motorcycles and N2 million in cash for the release of another 40 hostages.

The bandits had earlier demanded for N150 million ransom for the release of the victims rejecting the N1.5 million offered by the community.

Residents and families of the abductees have lamented over government silence over their challenge as they claimed that no government official or security agent have visited the community to get information on what happened.

They also lamented that there is no security in the community leaving them vulnerable to attacks, a development which they said had led to people leaving the village in fear of future attacks.

The chairman of Munya local government area, Honorable Aminu Najume said that the negotiations are being done by the community as the Council is not involved in the negotiation with the terrorists.
