It was gathered that the terrorists have contacted his family and demanded a ransom of N30 million for his release.
“But after several negotiations between his father, Sheikh Abdullahi Dalla Dallaglio Gusau and the terrorists, the ransom was reduced to N15 million,” a source close to the family told SaharaReporters.
All efforts to get the reaction of the Nigeria Police Force, Zamfara State Command, were unsuccessful. The spokesperson for the state police command, Muhammed Shehu, told SaharaReporters that he would get back but never did. Subsequent efforts to reach him on his mobile phone were not successful as he did not answer the calls and also did not reply to the text message sent to him.
