The two kidnapped lecturers – Adamu Chonoko from Ahmadu Bello University and Umar Chonoko from Kaduna Polytechnic – have escaped from the den of their kidnappers. Spokesperson of Kebbi Indigenes Resident in Kaduna and Garkuwan Wakilin Sarkin Zurun Kaduna, Garba Muhammad, confirmed this on Sunday afternoon.

He told News Express: “Yes, the two siblings and indigenes of Kebbi State have escaped from their kidnappers and arrived the palace of Wakilin Sarkin Zurun Kaduna and were received by the Wakili around 11:51am today (Sunday). We thank Allah for their escape.

“Umar Chonoko went to deliver the N2 million and a motorcycle ransom to secure his brother Adamu’s freedom, only for the abductors to hold him back and demanded another N5million ransom.

“N3 million was delivered, making a total of N5 million, but the abductors made another demand of N10 million.

“Their demand could not be met. Just this morning, with the assistant of security agents, both of them escaped.

“We thank the media, security agencies and all those who helped us in praying for their freedom.”

The Spokesperson of the Kaduna State Police Command, ASP Yakubu Sabo, could not be reached when contacted to comment on the development.
