The incident, now widely discussed under the hashtag #NajeebahAndHerSisters, has ignited outrage on various social media platforms.

Ariyo Folorunso Oladosu family from Ekiti state was also kidnapped alongside Nabeeha’s family from the same compound.

The kidnappers, operating with brazen audacity, have not only demanded a substantial ransom but have also intensified their threats by allegedly killing a 13-year-old Folorunsho Ariyo.

These criminals have reportedly increased their ransom demands from the initial N60 million staggering N100 million, totaling N700 million for the sisters.

This move, coupled with the alleged killing of victims due to delays in meeting ransom demands, has instilled fear and desperation among families who find themselves at the mercy of these merciless abductors.
