Niger commissioner for information released, no ransom paid- Family reveals

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy in Niger, Muhammad Idris, kidnapped five days ago, has regained his freedom.

There was no ransom paid, said his family.

According to a statement by his family, his abductors released him at about 9.30 p.m. Thursday night.

A member of the family, Ado Ada, who issued the statement, expressed his delight over the victim’s safe return.

“His release was wholly the result of the efforts of his family, and no ransom was paid. The family facilitated his release with divine intervention from Allah,” claimed Mr Ada.
