Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Isa Sa’idu, Zaria

Seventy four-year-old Zaria doc­tor, Stephen Kitch­ener, who was kid­napped about five days ago was re­leased yes­ter­day.

Daily Trust gath­ered that the kid­nap­pers of the doc­tor called the fam­ily on phone and asked them to pick up the doc­tor at Sabon Gari area of Zaria.

Con­firm­ing the re­lease, spokesper­son of the Kaduna State Po­lice Com­mand, SP Aminu Lawal, ap­plauded the co­op­er­a­tion that the com­mand re­ceived from var­i­ous groups and in­di­vid­u­als while the search for the doc­tor lasted.

One of Dr. Kitch­ener’s sons, Musa Micheal Kitch­ener, also con­firmed that his fa­ther has re­turned home.

“The only prob­lem with him for now is stress. He is rest­ing and we want to al­low him to have a good rest. We thank God and all those who as­sisted in one way or the other,” he said.

Both the fam­ily and po­lice could not con­firm if ran­som was paid for the doc­tor’s re­lease.
