Kidnappers reportedly killed Mustapha Bala Ali, son of Bala Ali Lukshi, a member representing Dass Local Government in the Bauchi State after collecting ransom twice.
It was gathered that the kidnappers abducted Mustapha in Dass, and demanded millions of naira for his release.
The lawmaker told Labari Daga Bauchi on Tuesday, that after paying ransom, the kidnappers told him where he will find his son.
“After reaching there, we could not find anyone. We were making phone calls with those people. They collected the money they asked me to bring, but later told me that I submitted the money late and I needed to add more,” the lawmaker said although he did not reveal the amount paid.
“I was one day late ahead of their deadline because the money was not complete then. They threatened to kill the boy. At that point, I added another money for them as they requested,” he said.
“The last time we spoke was eight days ago, and from then they were not specific in all their conversations. I even pleaded with them that his mother wanted to hear his voice but they failed to connect us with him.”
The lawmaker added that the terrorists at a point told him they have killed his son and subsequentlly, they refused to pick up his calls.
“That is why I asked our Liman to proceed with a funeral service for him even if he will return afterwards. Although I am not certain about his death, I’m hopeless for now.” he said.
