Written by Deckson N.

His kidnappers are demanding a ransom of 60 million FCFA.

In the night of Friday to Saturday, the named Alhaji Issa Aliou from Martap in the Adamawa Region was taken from his home by unidentified individuals. However, we know from sources that his kidnappers were heavily armed. The latter who are claiming a ransom of 60 million FCFA to free their hostage left a phone number. The teams of the Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) and those of the Motorised Infantry Brigade (BIM), who launched a search for Alhaji Issa until November 7 had not yet located him.

The daily Le Jour edition of November 8, 2016 reports that according to the DO of the Martap sub division, “defense forces are looking for Mr. Issa. A judicial inquiry has been opened by the gendarmerie of Martap “. The administrative authority indicates that the current military operation has one goal, one to get hands on these kidnappers to free the hostage. “Raking villages is underway. Meanwhile the Martap town is empty of its population since last Sunday. ” Sources indicate that, in the space of three days nearly a hundred family left Martap in destination of Likok or Ngaoundere.

At the Martap brigade another source indicates that it’s since October 20 that fear has gained ground. “kidnapping threats of breeders and their children are common,” she says. We must remember that it is for these reasons of insecurity that the Governor had decided last September to disconnect the village of Martap from telephone networks. The goal was to track down the kidnappers.
