- The family of renowned Kano-based Quranic reciter, Sheikh Ahmad Sulaiman, has been reportedly contacted by his abductors
- Sheikh Sulaiman and five other persons were kidnapped in Katsina state on Friday, March 15
- Malam Muhammad Nasir Dan-Kurna, Sheik Sulaiman's errand said the abductors have called the family several times
The abductors of a famous Kano Qur’anic reciter, Sheikh Ahmad Sulaiman, have contacted his family, Daily Trust reports.
Legit.ng gathered that while confirming the development on Sunday, March 17, Malam Muhammad Nasir Dan-Kurna, an errand boy of the cleric, said the abductors called the family several times.
According to the newspaper, Dan-Kurna said: “Sheikh’s kidnappers called us through his mobile phone. In fact, they allowed him to speak with members of his family from morning to evening of Friday, March 15, but they seized his phone in the night.
“They called about five times before we connected them with a Gwandu-based renowned Islamic scholar.
“What happened is that after we spoke with them and I informed his colleagues, Sheikh Nasiru Gwandu directed me to give the abductors his number whenever they want to commence negotiations and that was what I did.”
Asked whether the abductors have demanded any ransom, Dan-Kurna said he could not say because after the kidnappers collected Gwandu’s phone number, they only called once to inform him that they had contacted Sheikh Gwandu.
“I can only confirm that negotiation is in progress, but I have no idea how much they are demanding. I pray we get Sheikh Sulaiman alive,” he said.
He thanked those who have shown concern and appealed to the Muslim Ummah to intensify prayers for immediate release of the scholar.
