The member representing Mashi/Dutsi federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Sani Bello, has been released after spending two days in kidnappers’ den.
The lawmaker reportedly acceded to his abductors’ demand to pay N10million ransom, confirming our report yesterday.
Bello was seized around Gobirawa village of Birnin Gwari, Kaduna State, alongside one of his aides by his abductors.
Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Katsina State, Shittu Shittu, who confirmed the development, said no sooner had the money been taken to the abductors than the member was released.
“The abductors asked that the member’s driver should take the money to a designated place and just between 15 and 20 minutes later, Bello was released”, he said.
