Gunmen believed to be bandits have released from their captivity, the Emir of Kajuru, Alhassan Adamu.
According to Daily Trust, a source that spoke with the news platform disclosed that other 13 people abducted from the monarch’s private residence are still in captivity.
“The Sarkin Kajuru was released around the forest areas leading to Kajuru castle,” the source said.
A member of the Emir’s family who spoke on the development noted that he is well and will be taken to the hospital for examination.
The development was confirmed by Ibrahim Inuwa Kajuru, a former chairman of the Nigerian Union of Journalists in Kaduna.
Kajuru further stated that the emir has addressed his subjects at his palace.
It is unclear if any ransom was paid but the bandits had earlier demanded N200 million for the release of the monarch
