The famous Zamfara twin sisters who were kidnapped a month ago have been released on Saturday evening.
According to Daily Nigerian report, N15 million ransom was paid before their release.
The money was raised through crowd funding, family contributions and borrowing. The largest contribution came from a senator, Kabir Marafa.
On Wednesday, the abductors of the twin sisters threatened to kill one of the girls if payment of their ranson was not made on time.
The twins, Hassana and Hussaina, were kidnapped last month in Dauran town while distributing the invitation cards of their wedding.
A family member, Ibrahim Abubakar, who spoke with the kidnappers and the twins on phone on Thursday said the kidnappers had reduced the ransom to N15 million.
“We are only able to get N6m selling our properties and receiving contributions from family members, politicians, traders and ordinary people,” Mr Abdubakar told DAILY NIGERIAN on Thursday night.
