DSP Mujeli Ahidjo, the police officer in charge of Mubi North Division in Adamawa State kidnapped two weeks ago has finally regained his freedom.
Family sources say that released DPO is at present at Mubi receiving sympathizers and well-wishers.
However, the source declined to disclose how much was paid in ransom of the DPO but ,” huge sum of money was paid to the kidnappers before he was released.”
Meanwhile, the state police command through it’s spokesman, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, said that ”Operation Puff Ader/Operation Farauta in its efforts has rescued the DPO from the hands of his abductors.”
The kidnappers had earlier threatened to kill him unless the sum of N20 million was paid. In an audio clip in Hausa language, a man, assumed to be the kidnappers’ kingpin, was heard threatening the negotiator that if the relatives of the kidnapped DPO failed to deliver the ransom on Thursday they would have no option than to kill him.
The divisional police officer was kidnapped on Wednesday, November 26 around 6.30 pm along Mubi-Maraba road by unknown gunmen.
