The Niger state Commissioner for Information, Mohammed Idris Sani, has recounted his ordeal in the hands of abductors. Recall that Idris was abducted on Monday morning, August 9, after gunmen broke into his residence at Babban-Tunga, a community off Abuja/Kaduna highway. They were said to have attacked his wife and baby before whisking him away. He regained his freedom on Thursday night, August 12. Speaking to newsmen after he was received by the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Alhaji Abdullahi Bawa Wuse and some members of the Executive Council, Idris said he was made to sleep in the rain for two days before his abductors decided to give him their own trampoline to shield him from the weather. “I went through a lot of trials in their hands, a lot of dehumanizing things. It is not an experience that I will pray for my greatest enemy. It was dehumanizing, humiliating and degrading,” he said Recalling how it all started, Sani said ”They picked me from my house after breaking all the doors. They took me to a no man’s land in the middle of nowhere. I was there exposed to the rains for 48 hours with neither food nor water given to me, with my hands and legs tied.Instead of them breaking me, I started breaking them. They started giving me bread and water, they untied me and they began to show concern. They gave me the trampoline they used to cover themselves when they sleep and allowed me to use it to cover myself in the rains.” The Commissioner said he was the only one in the kidnappers’ den as the kidnappers described his case as a high-profile kidnap that was well planned and carried out. He alleged that his abductors came from Zamfara State and had been asked to kill him except he paid N200million. ”They came with an intention that they would get N200 million from me or my life and they left with no money and with my life intact. The people that kidnapped me, please don’t curse them because before I left them I told them I have forgiven them. They promised that they would quit banditry because of me.They don’t know this village but they were hired from Zamfara State to kidnap me. They said monthly, the Niger State governor gives me N200m and if I give them less than N200m, I should be killed. I have forgiven the kidnappers and those people that hired them.” he said Sani said he was proud that the government did not pay the ransom demanded by the bandits saying that he would have resigned if the government had intervened in his case. ”I am proud to be part of this government. The first thing I did when I came out was to send a text to my Governor to thank him for having the strength of heart not to allow any state machinery intervene in my release because we decided in council that the Niger state government is averse to the payment of ransom to bandits for any situation, for any case.“I thank the Government for standing by their word.They were able to protect the integrity of our government. I prefer to lose my life than to take the government to the washes and we succeeded.“If the government had intervened in my case, I would have resigned because that means we would have been going back on our word.”he said He described his release as a miracle.” Nobody paid any ransom, I was not rescued, I was released. It is just a miracle. I believe that it is a miracle, God touched their hearts to release me to reunite with my family.”Sani saidThe post Bandits tied me up without food for 48 hours.

  1. Certain venture capital managers prefer to utilize tactics that, for example, supply some liquidity to
    their investors, and therefore may perhaps make use of the “private fund” exemption from registration under the Advisers Act, rather than the “venture capital” exemption. Sure, several of these fund managers will
    be capable to raiwe funds for their VCTs, wit the aid of
    a couple of Nomads, but are they going to succeed in growing their investments.
    My guidance to folks who want to be venture caqpitalists wokuld be to very
    first start out a venture or join a growing enterprise to get experience in an entrepreneurial journey.

    Venture capital is a mode of financing a startup where investors like financial institutions, Banks, Pension funds,
    corporations, and higher network individuals assists a new and quickly growing businesses by providing
    Long term equity finance and sensible assistance as a Business partners, in exchange of
    share in danger as properly as rewards and
    guarantees solid capital base for future growth. Because seed cash is invested in the course of the early
    stages of a startup, there’s greater danger involvesd
    on behawlf of the investors. Instead, they most often invest in emerging firms that are far more established, seeing them by way of their growth stages and into IPOs or mergers.
