Bala, who was kidnapped a month ago, was released on Saturday, according to a statement from the state’s Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Dosara.
The victim was released unharmed, according to the commissioner.
He did, however, announce that the state government did not pay a ransom to free him, despite the abductors’ initial demand of N50 million.
“We are pleased to announce the release of Alh. Bala Afuro Gusau , who had been kept captive for over a month.
“Even though his kidnappers demanded a ransom, we were able to secure his release and no ransom was paid,” he said.
Remember that the State Police Command had previously secured the release of 11 people who had been kidnapped in the state.
