- His brother, however, said prominent members of the community told the family to stop the negotiation and assured them that he will be rescued safely
The provost of College of Agriculture and Animal Science Bakura, Habibu Mainasara, who was abducted by bandits three days ago, has regained his freedom.
Mainasara’s elder brother, Nasiru Mainasara, said that he was freed on Wednesday night.
Details about his release remain unclear as his brother did not reveal whether a ransom was paid.
On Monday – a day after he was taken – his abductors commenced negotiations for his release and demanded a ransom of ₦5 million from his family.
His brother, however, said prominent members of the community told the family to stop the negotiation and assured them that he will be rescued safely.
Following his abduction, the Police Command in the state deployed a search and rescue team in the area to hunt down the bandits and ensure his safe return.
Spokesperson of the Command Mohammed Shehu, however, said on Monday that the command was not aware of any negotiation between the family and the abductors.
