JUST IN: Sulaiman kidnapped

Tension right now as Unknown gunmen in Katsina State reportedly Kidnapped a popular Qur’anic reciter and Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmed Sulaiman.

Multiple sources, including Sheikh Mansur Sokoto, have confirmed that Mr Sulaiman was abducted together with five others along Sheme to Kankara local government areas of Katsina State.

It was also gathered that the Kano-based Qur’anic scholar was kidnapped on Thursday while coming back from Kebbi State.

Recently, Katsina state has become a den for kidnappers.
Recall that late last year, a group of Islamic caregivers, First Aid Group, FAG, was also kidnapped in the state.

About 20 of the FAG members were abducted in Jibiya Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Speaking with newsmen, the National Chairman of the Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’ah Wa’ikamatis Sunnah, JIBWIS, Sani Jingir, disclosed that the victims were on their way back to their destination in Sokoto State, after attending a first aid camp in Dutse, the capital of Jigawa State.

“Our members of the First Aid Group from Sokoto state on their way home were kidnapped after they have left Jibya in Katsina State before they entered Zamfara State.

“The kidnappers peacefully stopped them, took them out of their bus, before moving them into the bush. Their bus was abandoned and we were able to retrieve it,” he said.

The cleric expressed shock that the incident happened to caregivers. He told journalists that President Buhari had called him to express sympathy about the kidnap.

When asked if the kidnappers have contacted the group, Mr Jingir said so far no one has contacted them.

“As at the time of this conference, nobody has contacted us. It is very unfortunate.

“I urge the kidnappers to fear Allah, they should know that the hostages were only first aiders, nobody is paying them salary, they only render help to people,” he added.

Kidnapping for ransom has increased in many parts of Nigeria including states like Zamfara, Kaduna, Katsina, Ondo and Ekiti.

The police are yet to speak on the kidnap of the caregivers.
