“I spoke with one of the bandits who said my brother was fine. He said I should be ready to pay for feeding my brother since he was kidnapped,” he said, sobering.

Another relative of a kidnapped victim, Mrs. Ngozi, who said he was discharged from the hospital in Kaduna on Thursday, said the only sister in the family was among those kidnapped.
