We paid ransom for freedom of 3 ABU students, family counters Police

A family member of one of the three abducted students of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) who the police on Wednesday  said they released has revealed that huge ransom was paid for their freedom.  

The students were kidnapped, Monday, along Abuja-Kaduna road, alongside three other persons who are still hostages of the kidnappers.

 The family source accused the Nigerian police of lying after it took credit for the release of the final year Law students. 

An earlier report today quoted the Kaduna state police command, confirming the release of the students, said they regained their freedom due to the prompt response of its officers and other security operatives. 

The Command spokesman Yakubu Sabo stated; “The Command wishes to state that, on the said date, August 26, at about 18:50hrs, armed men in military uniform intercepted some commuters near Masari village along Kaduna-Abuja Expressway, opened fire on the vehicles, in the process kidnapped six persons. 

“Due to the prompt response of the Police and other security agents to the scene, three people were later released by the hoodlums due to intensive combing within the general area.”  

 However, after President Buhari’s aide on New Media, Bashir Ahmad retweeted the police statement, he got countered by a relative of one of the students. @Sadiqango who said it took them 48 hours to negotiate the release of the students. 

Bashir Ahmad posted on Twitter “The Kaduna State Police Command has rescued three students of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria abducted on Monday along Abuja-Kaduna highway.

Sadiq Ango retorted; “Lies… It took us 48 long hours of negotiation with the kidnappers to secure the release of our sister to us, NOT the police. Ransom was paid in full as negotiated with the three families involved”.

This development may have explained why the other three abducted persons have not regained their freedom after the three students regained theirs.
