<!– Gunmen kidnap Adamawa NULGE chairman Hamman-Jolde Gatugel –>
The Chairman of National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) in Adamawa State, Alhaji Hammanjulde Gatugel, who was abducted on Saturday by unknown gunmen has regained his freedom.
The NULGE chairman was kidnapped at 00.50 a.m. at Mayo-Belwa local government area in southern Adamawa.
He was freed almost the same time on Sunday.
It was not clear how much might have been paid as ransom before he was freed.
According to the pokesman of the Adamawa State Police Command, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, who confirmed the development, ascribed it to the police.
He said a hot chase by the police frightened the kidnappers into releasing their victim and that he was released unharmed.
Nguroje had shortly after Hammanjulde Gatugel’s abduction on Saturday announced that four men had been nabbed and that the four had confessed to being kidnappers.
He had explained that the suspects were arrested by the State Command of Anti-Kidnappers Special Unit deployed in the area to rescue the NULGE chairman.
“In an effort to rescue the kidnapped NULGE chairman, the Commissioner of police, Audu Madaki, had deployed operatives to go after the kidnappers and ensure the victim is rescued unharmed and culprits apprehended,” Nguroje had explained.
He named the four suspects as Sunday Innocent 33, Buba Kaijo 37, Sanusi Shehu 20, and Tercher Buwa 44.
“The suspects confessed being among the notorious kidnappers that are terrorising people in Mayo-Belwa, Jada, Ganye and Toungo Local Government Areas,” he had added.
