Bandits Demand Ransom From Family Of Adamawa Medical Doctor


Bandits who kidnapped a medical doctor and owner of a private hospital in Adamawa State, Dr. Saidu Bala, have contacted the family asking for an undisclosed huge ransom.

A family member, who is the Registrar of Modibbo Adama University (MAU) Yola, told SaharaReporters that the abductors contacted the family on Tuesday. .

Speaking while crying, Halima Bala, said: “They called this morning and we were able to speak with my brother, who assured us of his safety.

“My brother asked us to source for a ransom; all he said was that you all should source for a lot of money.”

Dr Bala was kidnapped on Monday evening while seeing patients at his Aisha hospital in Ngurore, a satellite town on the outskirt of Yola, the state capital.

It was learnt that the assailants numbering about four stormed the hospital at about 7pm and forcibly took him away while firing shots to scare away people.

The spokesperson for the police command in the state, Sulaiman Nguroje, said: “The Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Ahmed Barde, has directed that Bala be rescued and the assailants apprehended.

“The CP has also assured the government and people of the state that Bala would be rescued unharmed.”
