Abductors of Release Emir of Bungudu from 32-Day Captivity

After spending thirty-two days in the captivity of kidnappers, the abductors of the Emir of Bungudu in Zamfara State, Alhaji Hassan Attahiru, got his freedom.

Recall that the emir was kidnapped on September 14 when bandits attacked his motorcade along Kaduna-Abuja Highway.

The monarch was said to have regained his freedom Saturday evening in Kaduna State.

Gazali Shehu Ahmad, Special Adviser to Governor Bello Matawalle on Strategy, also confirmed the release of the monarch.

In a Facebook post, he wrote, “On behalf of the family and Bungudu Emirate, we wish to thank everyone for the prayers and support during this trying time.

“We appreciate all the efforts of Kaduna State Government throughout this challenging period. Our immense gratitude to the Zamfara State Government is playing a key role to see our father returned home safely.”

“We salute the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) and Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) for the support in facilitating the release of the Emir.

“We wish to plead with the public to respect the privacy of the Emir in the coming weeks as he receives medical attention and post-trauma management.”

About N20 million was paid last week as ransom to his abductors who, however, refused to release him, asking for additional money.
