The kidnapped chairman of Akwanga Local Government Council in Nasarawa State, Safiyanu Isah Andaha, has regained freedom after payment of N10m ransom.
The council Chairman was released alongside his friend, Adamu Custom and two other victims held by their abductors along Akwanga-Andaha road after payment of 10 million naira ransom to secure their release.
A source close to the victims who did not want his name mentioned said the victims were freed by their abductors behind a filling station along Bayan Dutse road, an outskirt of Andaha town.
“They were released around 9 pm behind Maigwona filling station at Bayan Dutse road and the sum of 10 million naira was paid as ransom,” he said.
Nigeriacrime.com, however, gathered that the kidnappers were suspected to be Fulani boys who were turning their victims around the bush parts.
Immediately after they regained freedom, they were taken to Adamu Customs’s personal residence in Andaha and later escorted by heavy security men to Federal Medical Centre Keffi for medical attention.
