He said, “It was two days ago. My immediate younger brothers and their families were on the farm. They had finished for the day and were about to leave when the kidnappers met them.

“They came to the farm with a pickup car. So, by the time the driver got into the car, the kidnappers approached him and threatened him with a gun, forcing him to stop the car.

“There were 13 of them on the farm including seven children between the ages of 15 and 17, three women; one just got married last year and an aged woman, my brothers and the tractor driver”. Information Guide Nigeria

He stated how frustrating and helpless his family had been since the incident happened, noting that they tried the numbers of captors who had contacted other families in the past, but none was reachable.

“We have been so helpless, but towards the evening yesterday, we were contacted by the kidnappers, and by the way they spoke, we knew they were herdsmen.

“They were asking us, how many of our families were abducted. We didn’t tell them because we suspected they trying to fish out a particular family. But they have not stated their demands yet.”
