Kidnappers Cut Abducted Magistrate, Adamu Kuvo’s Lips In Nasarawa State For Paying N400K Out Of N5M Ransom Demanded

A senior magistrate in Nasarawa state has been disfigured by some gunmen who kidnapped him on the 6th of May 2019.

Mr Adamu Kuvo who was abducted in his house in the Agwada Kokona LGA of Nasarawa state was stabbed in the eyes, slashed in the face with part of his lips cut off for paying N400,000 out of the five million naira ransom they demanded.

According to Northern City News, Kuvo was found on a farm along Agwada Road on Saturday by farmers.

A brother to the victim, Mr Abdullahi Osu-Ibaku, said Kuvo was sleeping in his bedroom when the kidnappers invaded his house at Akpwu village around 12am and took him away.

According to him, someone informed him on Saturday that his brother had been found and brought to the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi.

He said;

“The kidnappers had demanded N5m ransom and we negotiated with them but they insisted on the amount. We offered N150,000, but they refused to accept it.

“We later increased it to N200,000 and they asked me to bring the money to Udege pegi along Akpwu village.

“After receiving it, they asked me to come the next day when they said my brother would be released. But the following day, I did not see him until on Saturday when someone told me that he had been taken to FMC Keffi by policemen at Agwada police outpost.”

    Wicked Fulani kidnappers! What is the government doing about this issue? Things are getting so bad that you have to think twice before going to Nigeria because of security problems. The government is busy with witch hunting while thieves & rogues are allowed to walk around freely because they are in the same party, the masses are suffering. Anyway, what am I even talking about? We don’t have a government in Nigeria, what we have are incompetent wicked and selfish group of people. God will judge all of you.

    What are the governors doing with security money given to them? what is the National Assembly doing about insecurity in the country? What is the executive branch saying about all this? the answer is nothing. They and their cronies are busy lining their pockets with money and looting the treasury. As long as there is division in the country, as long as there is conspiracy to deny justice to a section of the country, as long as tribalism and nepotism reigns in the country, this nonsense will continue. We have incompetent leaders in-charge of the affairs of this nation. Sometimes I don’t blame the leaders. Look at the violence happened during the last election especially in Lagos and Port Harcourt, it is those that are being oppressed that were used by the politicians that caused the mayhem. Now that politics is over the politicians will leave them to their fate and they go about kidnapping and robbing innocent people.

      Uzoma, what’s happening in Nigeria is not limited to any ethnic group or an individual but everybody in the leadership position. It is very wrong to focus our attention to a particular sector.

      There are lot of people from the East, West, North and South who are working with these destroyers. They never thought on how to solve the problem of the Country because all of them are benefiting from that problem. It doesn’t take forever to find a solution to Nigeria’s problem.

      If we cannot have few people in the leadership out of 180 million population to solve our problem, then there is no point to remain as a Country. All of them are acting like ignorant because they have all enrolled in the same caucus.They all belongs to the same secret club where they use the rest of the populace as sacrifice. If they do the right thing, they won’t be rich anymore, they won’t have that power anymore and they are not ready to forgo that. That is why Nigeria problem cannot be solved, that is a fact.
