gombeThe member representing Gombe North constituency in the State House of Assembly, Alhaji Jalo Ganga, who was kidnapped at about 5.00 a.m. on Sunday while returning from his morning prayers by unknown gunmen, has been released.

Ganga was released on Wednesday night by his captors, and was reunited with his family at about 10.30 p.m.

Speaking to newsmen in the house of the lawmaker on Thursday, the legislator’s younger brother, Malam Abdulkadir Mohammed-Yelwa, said his brother arrived home on a motorcycle at about 10 p.m. on Wednesday.

Mohammed-Yelwa said the legislator was received by members of his family, friends and relations who were happy on his safe release and thanked God for answering their prayers.

“We are very happy seeing our brother. He has returned and met with his family; but right now he is not home.

“He came back and told people not to worry that he had arrived safely. May be later in the day or tomorrow, you will see him and talk with him. We thank everybody who helped us in prayers,’’ he said.

Shortly after he met with his family, Ganga went to the Government House.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Fwaje Atajiri, said the lawmaker was released unconditionally, adding that he had gone to Government House.
