DAILY POST recalls that the daredevil bandits had on Thursday last week, attacked the bride and those accompanying her, around the Sabuwa area while travelling in an open van.

The gunmen killed at least four members of a vigilante group during the unfortunate attack.

At least 55 wedding guests were abducted during the attack and the victims have since then been held hostage, according to villagers.

However, in a video clip currently in circulation on social media, the killer bandits were sighted threatening to marry the bride and sell the other captives if ransom was not paid on time.

DAILY POST learnt that the assailants had contacted families of the victims, demanding N100 million as the only condition to free the captives.

In the video clip, a gang leader, clad in police uniform, claimed responsibility for the abduction, saying nobody can rescue the women.

“I am the one who abducted them, and I will never release them until ransom is paid. And if there is anyone who thinks they could rescue them, they should try it,” he said.
