3 siblings killed in Taraba after payment of ransom
Three brothers have been confirmed killed by kidnappers in the Lau Local Government Area (LGA) of Taraba State.
This was confirmed in a statement by the Taraba State Police Command spokesman, Abdullahi Usman, who said the sad incident occurred on Sunday at Garin Dogo community of Lau Local government Area.
Usman noted that the three brothers were kidnapped from the said community, adding that the kidnappers had demanded a ransom of N100million to release the victims, while the father of the trio, Alhaji Musa, a dealer in cattle had negotiated to N60million which they agreed.
The kidnappers reportedly demanded that the money should be paid in cash and given to them via a motorcyclist, but they later killed the ransom bearer and the three brothers after they got the money.
