Ab­ducted Kaduna driver freed

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Mis­bahu Bashir, Kaduna

Vice Chair­man of the Kaduna State Petroleum Tanker Driv­ers (PTD) union, Al­haji Ab­dul­lahi Mo­hammed, who was ab­ducted by uniden­ti­fied gun­men, has been re­leased.

Mo­hammed was seized by kid­nap­pers on Fri­day at his res­i­dence along Matazu Close, Tudun Wada, Kaduna.

His two mo­bile phones were switched off shortly af­ter the in­ci­dent, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult for mem­bers of his fam­ily to reach him. The kid­nap­pers also did not make any con­tact with the fam­ily, Daily Trust gath­ered.

Mo­hammed was how­ever re­leased on Sun­day evening around 8pm. A source close to the vic­tim told Daily Trust that the kid­nap­pers dumped him close to his house on Sun­day night and drove away.

The state po­lice spokesman, Aminu Lawan, said be­fore the re­lease of the vic­tim that they were aware of the in­ci­dent and that they were do­ing their best to free the vic­tim.

But ef­forts to get the po­lice com­ment on the mat­ter yes­ter­day proved abortive as they did not re­spond to calls made to them.
