The team of four (all males) had kidnapped their victim, a female pupil of St. Joseph’s Primary School for the visually handicapped in the afternoon of March 8, and proceeded to Bishiri village in neighboring Obanliku local government area about 4 kilometers east of the school located in the heart of Obudu.
