BREAKING: Kidnapped Nabeeha’s sisters finally regain freedom

The four remaining siblings of the late Nabeeha Al-Kadriyah have been granted freedom.

The sisters and their father were kidnapped by rampaging bandits in early January.

Their abductors had set a ransom payment deadline, and the family’s failure to meet it resulted in Nabeeha’s death.

After killing the victim, the criminals increased the demand from N60 million to N100 million, threatening to kill the surviving sisters.

However, as of the time of reporting this article (12:30 a.m. on Sunday), the girls had recovered their freedom and returned to their Abuja home, where they had been abducted.

It was said that security personnel took them home, where they were met by family members.

The four victims are Najeeba, a 500-level Quantity Surveying student, her younger sister Nadherah, a 300-level Zoology student, all from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria, and their twin sisters Habeeba and Haneesa.

Sherifdeen, the girls’ uncle, verified the development in a telephone discussion on Sunday morning.

According to him, “The girls’ release was secured late Saturday,” he said.

It was gathered that although the N100 million ransom placed on them had since been paid, the bandits held on to them for days putting the family in suspense until Saturday night.

In a statement signed by Sherifdeen Al-Kadriyah, the family thanked the Nigerians for standing by them during the trying and traumatic period.

“Words cannot express the immense gratitude and relief we feel at this moment. It is a true testament to the power of faith and the unwavering support and prayers from every one of you. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank Allah for His mercy and guidance throughout this difficult time.

“However, amidst our celebration and gratitude, we must remember and pray for those who have lost their lives during this process. Their sacrifices must not go unnoticed, and their families must be in our prayers and thoughts.

“May Allah grant them the highest ranks in Jannah, enveloping them with His mercy and forgiveness. May He bring comfort and peace to their grieving families, providing them with strength to endure their loss.

“Our beloved daughters have shown remarkable strength and resilience, and we are overjoyed to have them back in our arms. Their bravery and courage during their time held captive will forever inspire us all. May Allah bless and protect every one of these incredible young women and grant them emotional healing and strength in the days to come”.
