The 29 Zamfara wedding guests who were abducted days ago, have regained their freedom.
Recall that the wedding guests who are smartphones and accessories dealers at the popular Bebeji Plaza in Gusau, the Zamfara state capital, were abducted while returning from a wedding in Sokoto State on Saturday, June 11 at Dogon Awo, a community between Tureta and Bakura located on the borders of Sokoto and Zamfara States.
Channels Television reported that Secretary of an association to which the victims belonged in Zamfara State, Ashiru Zurmi confirmed the release and also disclosed that they are on their way to Gusau, the state capital.
Zurmi did not disclose whether the union or families of the victims paid any ransom for their release.
“Our members have regained their freedom today, I can confirm to you. They are currently on their way to Gusau.
“I can only tell you now that they have been released.”
The bandits had earlier demanded the sum of N145million ransom to secure the release of the 29 victims.
