“Today, the village head of Zirya and his son regain freedom, and both of them are in good health condition,” Wakili said on Tuesday.

It is unclear if the abductors received a ransom or if they were rescued as the police did not give further details.

Similarly, the ex-Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Sani Toro, and a former assistant coach of the Super Eagles, Garba Yila have regained freedom from their abductors.

The ex-NFF staff members were kidnapped on Saturday while returning to Bauchi from Abuja after attending a wedding ceremony of the son of the former NFF President, Aminu Maigari.
