She was unfortunately killed after the family could not meet up with the payment of the N60 million ransom demanded by their abductors.

Nabeeha, until her death was a 400-level student of biological science at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria.

However, Prof. Pantami disclosed on his X account on Sunday that he spoke with his friend and a brother who offered to pay the remaining 50 million Naira of the 60m demanded.

He said, “I am personally not in support of paying ransom to criminals. However, since it becomes clear, we lost our daughter Nabeeha yesterday, and the 5 remaining daughters have been threatened, as I spoke with the father on the matter yesterday and today.

“Furthermore, I spoke with a friend and a brother who offered to pay the remaining 50 million Naira of the 60m immediately. I conveyed the account number of the father of our daughters, Mansoor Al-Kadriyar, to the friend and brother to send the money directly. Any additional amount earlier generated from yesterday, the father can use to treat the daughters and other family members in sha Allah.

“May the Almighty Allah reward the bother and friend with Jannatul Firdaus for the donation. May He also reward all those who contributed in any way with Jannatul Firdaus, too. May He also forgive Nabeeha and rescue her sisters. May the Almighty also help our security agencies to bring an end to these challenges. May Nigeria be a better place for all of us”, he wrote on his X account.
