The woman’s children have been released after the kidnappers murdered her

Kidnappers who killed a Kaduna-based medical doctor, Philip Ataga that was abducted in January have finally released her children.

They were released around 7:00 p.m. on Thursday night.

The two children who were identified as Christabel and Jasmine were abducted alongside their mother from their residence at Juji area of Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State on January 25.

The kidnappers had earlier demanded N150 million ransom for their release but killed their mother after the family failed to pay the money.

Spokesman of Kaduna State police command, DSP Yakubu Sabo told Channels Television last week that the woman’s bullet-ridden body was found inside a bush in the Kakau area along the Abuja- Kaduna highway.

Although the police are yet to confirm the release of the two abducted children from captivity, their father, Dr Philip Ataga told Channels Television that the children were dropped by the kidnappers at Ungwar Kati area along the Juji bypass, where they were later picked by one of his relatives who brought them back home.

He, however, did not disclose if any ransom was paid before the release of his children.
