Chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) in Kogi, Wakili Damina, who was reportedly abducted from his Chikara home in Kogi local government area of the state has been released.

Secretary of the association in Kogi, Adamu Abubakar told newsmen in Lokoja that Damina was released in Abuja late Saturday.

Adamu said from Damina’s account, he was released by men suspected to be from one of the security agencies and not kidnappers as earlier suspected.

He said that Damina arrived at his Chikara home in Kogi Local Government area of the state in the early hours of Saturday to reunite with his family.

Adamu had announced to newsmen in Lokoja on May 4, that Damina was taken away from his house by eight men dressed in military camouflage.

He said that the men forcefully took him away in a white bus.

He also said that all efforts to get across to him proved abortive as his telephone lines were switched off.

However, the secretary, said that the national body of the association had taken the matter up to ascertain why Damina was whisked away in such a manner.

He also said that the group had instructed a lawyer to take the matter up.
