Katsina Women ‘Begged’ Bandits to Kidnap Mother-in-law — It Backfires

Last week,  two co-wives allegedly conspired with bandits to kidnap their mother-in-law in Dambowa village under Danmusa local council area of Katsina State.

As seen in footage obtained by WikkiTimes, the unidentified women had sought the bandits’ help in their hideouts to kidnap their husband’s mother who they believed was troublesome.

According to one of the wives, she was encouraged by her mother to plan the abduction.

In the video, one of the wives added that the abduction was carried out in the absence of their husband.


Things would later turn around as the bandits released the mother-in-law and abducted the wives.

“It was reported that she has been a strict mother in law to them, so they agreed on meeting the bandits to kidnap the woman on a deal that the husband would pay much ransom, luckily for the woman,  the husband refused  to pay a dime and one of the terrorists leader insisted that she must be released,” the source said. “In turn, some of the bandits kidnapped them [the women] for disappointing them.”

Gombo Isah, spokesman for Katsina Police Command was not available for comments. At press time, a text sent to him had not been responded to.
