Ibb: Houthi official kidnaps civilian, demands lands in exchange

A local source said on Saturday that the Houthi appointed Deputy Governor of Ibb governorate, middle of Yemen, has forcibly kidnapped a civilian and detained him in his house, asking his family to give up a land in exchange for his release. 

 

The source stated to Almasdaronline that gunmen, led by the Deputy Governor Ashraf Al Motawakel, have kidnapped Mohammed Abdul Aziz Al-Salahi from Qat market west of Ibb city  and took him to the Deputy Governor's house. 

 

"The Deputy Governor Al Mutawakkil then called Al Salahi's relatives asking them to give up a piece of land in exchange for his release," the source added.

 

It is worth mentioning that the Houthis have broken into Al Salahi's house few days ago, assaulted his wife and tampered with the house when he was not home at the time.

 

This issue has come up from a dispute between Al Salahi and members of his family on a legacy issue. However, the Houthis were trying to use this dispute and resolve this issue so as to take lands for them, which was rejected by Al Salahi before being kidnapped.
