Their deadly operations spanning five out of the six geopolitical zones of the nation resulted in a tragic toll, claiming the lives of at least six individuals, with 60 others kidnapped.

Additionally, one corpse was taken, and valuables worth millions of naira were pilfered. The sole zone untouched by these attacks was the South-South.

Surprisingly, both Force Headquarters and Defence Headquarters (DHQ) remained unresponsive to inquiries regarding their actions to curb the escalating insecurity, as of the latest press update.

In the capital city, Abuja, a group of kidnappers, who seized 10 individuals from Sagwari Layout, Dutse, on January 7, reportedly executed three victims as a grim warning to their families involved in ransom negotiations.

Notably, the abductors hiked their initial ransom demand from N60 million per person to a staggering N100 million, resulting in a cumulative sum of N700 million.
