Abductors of Hajiya Hauwa’u Adamu, the mother of famous Hausa musician, Dauda Adamu popularly known as Rarara, have asked for a ransom of N900million before granting her freedom.

A source close to the family said the kidnappers had contacted the family and initially demanded N1billion ransom.

The source was quoted by a news media as saying:  “They called the family with a phone of a woman the bandits collected when they came to pick up Hajiya. They demanded N1bn but after a brief discussion with a member of the family, they reduced the amount to N900million.

“At first, they demanded to seal the deal with Rarara himself because he felt sick following the abduction of his mother. They agreed to strike the deal with a member of the family. They confirmed to the family that Hajiya is in good condition and that she would be released as soon as the money is paid.

“The discussion between the bandits and family was very brief and since then they have not called again. But I believe the negotiation is still on. So, the family is still waiting for the bandits’ call to continue with negotiation.

“We learnt that after they gained access into her bedroom, they woke up all the women that were sleeping together with her and started comparing their faces with the photograph.”
