The abducted chairman of Keffi Local Government Area (LGA) in Nasarawa State, Muhammad Shehu-Baba, and his aide, Tanimu Mohammed, have regained freedom from their abductors.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Ramhan Nansel, confirmed the development.
The Keffi LGA Chairman, with his aide, were kidnapped on Keffi-Akwanga road on Friday by armed men after they killed his police orderly, Alhassan Habib.
The PPRO said they regained freedom around 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and were reunited with their families.
The police spokesperson, however, said three suspects were arrested around the Gittata community of Keffi LGA in connection with the crime.
“The suspects, who came from Kaduna State, were arrested while negotiating for ransom,” he added.
