The Story

Anas Ibrahim and Saleh Abdullahi, two hunters from Janjela Village, Nigeria, were killed when they tried to prevent the kidnapping two German archaeologists (Professor Peter Breunig and student Johannes Behringers, two team members of the Nok Culture Archaeological Research Project in Central Nigeria). In support of the families of these two heroic Nigerians we are setting up this crowdfunding action. Our thoughts are with our colleagues and with the families of Anas Ibrahim and Adamu Abdulrahim.

Message from Annika Schmidt, Gaby Franke, Hannes Behringer and Peter Breunig:

"We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of you. To see your compassion and your willingness to support the families of Anas Ibrahim and Saleh Abdullahi is heartwarming. We are overwhelmed by the large number of donors and the respectable sum of money collected, not only from the archaeological community but also from family, friends and colleagues. We will arrange the delivery of the money to the families in the next months. Before our departure, we already provided instant financial support to both families on behalf of the Nok project but your donations will help to support the families and ensure the education of the children.

We also sincerely thank the organizers Akinwumi Ogundiran, Zacharys Gundu and Willeke Wendrich for the idea and realization of the crowdfunding.

Annika, Gaby, Hannes & Peter"

We are now closing this crowd funding effort, which surpassed the set goal. Thank you all for your sympathy for the families of Anas Ibrahim and Saleh Abdullahi, who suffered a great loss. Thank you also for your generous contributions which we hope will be a bit of help to the families in this very difficult time.

We have just been informed that the name of the second person killed in the kidnapping was not correct. The two persons are Anas Ibrahim and Saleh Abdullahi. The previous information was taken from the press release of the AAN, but apparently was not quite correct. Our apologies and condolences to the family of Saleh Abdullahi.
