Over 120 Nigerians kidnapped in 6 days as country descends to hell Updated for 2021


Updated: March 6, 2021

The 76-year old Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has dismissed calls that he should step aside because of the collapsing economy and the mass killings taking place under his leadership.

But many are now wondering whether anything good can still come from his administration only months to a presidential election in February.

Between Friday last week and Thursday this week, at least 120 Nigerians have been kidnapped along the Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway in North Central Nigeria.

About a hundred people have also been killed there in ferocious attacks.

Reports from the West African country said the kidnappers dressed in military fatigue and armed with assault rifles were already making contacts with relatives for ransoms raging from $15000 and above.

On Tuesday, at least four villages were raided by the gunmen in the same region, dozens of people were killed while houses were torches.

The gunmen also carted away everything they could lay their bloody hands on.

Apart from attacks by Boko Haram in Nigeria’s northeast where tens of thousands have been killed and thousands remained missing after brazen kidnaps, insecurity virtually everywhere in Nigeria has expanded, raising concerns that the country was being turned into a killing field under Mr. Buhari.
