By Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna
After five days in captivity with abductors, the 50 years old kidnapped Iliyasu B. Suleiman, who is the Principal of Government Day Secondary School, Lere, Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area of Bauchi State, has appealed to Governor Bala Mohammed to urgenly come to his rescue by paying his ransom before his abductors killed him.
Family of the victim, in an SOS letter pleaded the governor to assist them pay the ransom to abductors who threatened to killed him if they failed to remit the undisclosed amount of millions requested
In the SOS titled: The Kidnapped of Bauchi Principal: Special Plea for Gov Bala Mohammed’s urgent Intervention”, the family stated that Ilyasu B. Suleman is the Principal of Government Day Science Secondary School, Lere in Bauchi State.
Iliyasu Suleiman and the Bauchi State Auditor General were kidnapped on Saturday January 25, 2021”.
Suleiman’s family further explained “The AG was shot on the mouth & now receiving treatment but the bandits went with the poor Principal. He has NEVER seen N1m in his life but the kidnappers have vowed to kill him if within two days his family did not bring N50m”.
Suleiman’s helpless family are therefore calling for the intervention of Governor Bala Mohammed and well-meaning individuals.
Meanwhile, in audio recording made available to our Forefront News correspondent by the family, the kidnapped victim, 50 years old Suleiman was heard speaking under pressure directing his wife to do everything possible to raise the ransom being demanded by the kidnappers in order to secure his release.
Suleiman further directed the wife to approach the Ministry of Education, his employers for intervention as well as sell his house and any other belongings in order to raise the money being demanded, saying that he was not comfortable where he is being held captive..
In her response, the visibly shaken wife was heard saying that she was doing everything possible to meet the target but regretted that sọ far, she was only able to raise the sum of N200,000 while the car was priced for N200,000, an amount she is expected to collect to make up the amount.
