One of Isa Ali Pantami’s acquaintances paid the N50 million ransom sought by the criminals who kidnapped Alhaji Mansoor Al-Kadriyar’s six children, as revealed by the former Minister of Communication and Digital Economy.

Following Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar’s death on Friday, the kidnappers threatened to hurt the surviving five siblings. The kidnappers killed her and buried her on Saturday by Islamic rituals.

Nabeeha, a 400-level Biological Science student at Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, was one of the students taken. The others are Najeebah (500-level quantity surveying) and Nadheerah (300-level zoology).

In a post, the former minister wrote, “Alhamdu lil Laah! I am personally not in support of paying ransom to criminals. However, since it became clear that we lost our daughter Nabeeha yesterday and the five remaining daughters have been threatened, I spoke with the father on the matter yesterday and today, I spoke with a friend and a brother who offered to pay the remaining 50 million Naira of the 60 million immediately.”

“I conveyed the account number of the father of our daughters, Mansoor Al-Kadriyar, to the friend and brother to send the money directly. Any additional amount generated yesterday, the father can use to treat the daughters and other family members, in sha Allah.”

“May the Almighty Allah reward the brother and friend with Jannatul Firdaus for the donation.”
