ABDUCTED NIGER STATE COMMISSIONER REGAINS FREEDOM
The Niger State Commissioner for Information Mohammed Idris has regained freedom from bandits who abducted him on Monday.
Recall that Eons Intelligence reported on Monday that the Commissioner was abducted from his residence at Baban Tunga village in Tafa local government of the State.
His release was confirmed by top Government officials in the State to newsmen on Thursday night.
Sources say the abducted Commissioner was released around 9:30pm at a location in Suleja after which he was taken to a hospital for medical check-up.
The Government officials, however, said no ransom was paid before the commissioner was released by his abductors.
Speaking after his release, the commissioner expressed gratitude to God for protecting him during his stay in the bandits’ den.
“As a Muslim, prayer is the the best shield against evil. Allah has a way of testing the faith of believers,” he said.
“My abductors regretted their cruel action and I have forgiven them. I urge you to forgive them too.”
