The Adamawa State Coordinator of the National Land Development Authority (NALDA), Zakaria Kraha, has been kidnapped.
A close friend of the family told SaharaReporters that Kraha was abducted on his back home from Makurdi, the Benue State capital, around Ngorore, a satellite town on the outskirt of Yola the Adamawa State capital.
The source who pleaded anonymity said, “the bandits have demanded an undisclosed amount for ransom.”
It was earlier reported that gun-wielding bandits also kidnapped the wife and three children of a District Head, Ardo Mustapha Ahmadu, in Adamawa State.
A family source had told SaharaReporters that the wife of the district head with her three children was abducted in their residence at Yolde-Pate, in the Yola-South Local Government Area of the state.
