 Boko Haram has demanded N28 million ransom for 52 persons  they abducted from Kwapre, a community in Hong council area of Adamawa State.

The insurgents who initially asked for N30 million, allowed a reduction of N2 million,  which they described as a discount for the rural Kwapre community.

The insurgents stormed Kwapre last month, killing seven persons, seizing 52 others who are mostly women,  and forcing several others to flee the community.

Little was heard of the 52 that the insurgents took away in the April 9 invasion until royal fathers disclosed to visiting government officials on Wednesday that the insurgents had asked for and insisted on a collective ransom of N28 million.

Village Head of Kwapre, Joel Kulaha, told the government officials that the insurgents called to give the community a discount of N2 million out of the N30 million demanded earlier.
