Principal Held Captive After Volunteering for Ransom Delivery in Kaduna State



A retired school principal who bravely volunteered to deliver ransom to kidnappers in Kaduna State has found himself in captivity. The revelation comes from former Nigerian senator, activist, and author, Sen. Shehu Sani, who shared the distressing news on the social media platform X.

According to Sen. Shehu Sani’s recent post, the retired principal had selflessly offered to deliver the ransom to secure the release of a kidnapped victim. However, instead of ensuring the safe return of the victim, the retired principal himself fell victim to the kidnappers in Kaduna state.

The retired principal has now been held captive for three days, and his abductors have reportedly contacted his family, demanding a ransom for his release. This incident sheds light on the complex and perilous nature of dealing with kidnappers in regions heavily affected by banditry and kidnapping, such as the Abuja-Kaduna highway and neighboring states.

The escalation of kidnapping incidents in recent years has been a cause for concern, despite concerted efforts by Nigerian security operatives to address the challenges. Areas like Kaduna State continue to grapple with the menace of kidnappings, prompting increased security interventions and rescue operations to ensure the safety of citizens.

The plight of the retired school principal underscores the risks faced by individuals who step forward to negotiate with kidnappers or facilitate ransom payments. It also highlights the urgency for comprehensive measures to address the root causes of kidnapping and banditry in affected regions.

As security forces intensify efforts to combat criminal activities and secure the release of victims, incidents like these emphasize the need for a multifaceted approach that goes beyond negotiations. Public safety remains a top priority, and authorities are working tirelessly to restore peace and security to areas facing the scourge of kidnapping.
