The Gombe State Commissioner of Police, Mr Shina Olukolu, on Wednesday, confirmed the release of Mr Ephraim Ajuji, a nurse who was abducted by hoodlums in the early hours of Tuesday in Dadin-Kowa town of Gombe.

Olukolu said in a telephone conversation that the victim was released in the early hours of Wednesday.

“Due to persistent pressure from security agencies, led by police operatives, the victim was released very early this morning (Wednesday),” he said.

The abductors of Mr Ephraim Ajuji, a nurse with Cottage Hospital in Dadin-Kowa town of Yamaltu Deba Local Government Area of Gombe, had demanded for N10m ransom.
