Family members, friends and well-wishers of the abducted Zamfara twin, have sent out a Save our Soul (SOS) cry to President Muhammadu Buhari and the Zamfara state governor to come to their rescue and save the young girls from imminent death.
The kidnappers that abducted 16-year-old twin sisters in Zamfara have threatened to kill one of the girls if they did not get N15 million ransom on time.
Hassana and Hussaina, whose wedding was slated for December, were abducted at their elder sister’s residence in Dauran village in Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
They had visited their sister, Summaya, 20, in preparation for their wedding on that fateful day when they were kidnapped. Their father, Alhaji Abubakar Yusuf, said the kidnappers had initially demanded N150 million.
A family member, Ibrahim Abubakar, who spoke with the kidnappers and the twins on phone, said the kidnappers had reduced the ransom to N15million.
“We are only able to get N6m selling our properties and receiving contributions from family members, politicians, traders and ordinary people,” Mr Abdubakar told the media Thursday night.
In an audio clip that had since gone viral on Facebook, one of the twin sisters, Hussaina was heard sobbing, complaining about maltreatment and appealing for help.
“I am battling with headache. We are in dire situation, they are about to kill us,” Hussaina sobbed. They beat us every morning. Please help rescue us. Even yesterday, they slaughtered some people in our presence. We are starving. Please get contributions even from the general public.”
But one of the abductor cut in, saying the call would be the last he would make with the twins as they failed to deliver the ransom.
