The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DSP Kamal Abubakar, who confirmed the release to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said the victim was released by his captors on Tuesday.

Abubakar further stated that he was not aware if any ransom was paid for his release.

”I am not aware of any ransom but from the information available with me, it is confirmed that Mohammad has been released and reunited with his family,” he said.

But, when contacted a neighbour to the kidnapped victim, one Mr Ardo Hazzad, told NAN that the victim came home on commercial motorcycle hale and hearty.

He said his family members were so emotional when they saw him.

“Yes he has been released; we were so surprised because he came on commercial motorcycle locally called “Achaba”.
