He said the victim was released on October 10 after N200,000 was paid to the kidnapping syndicate by the victim’s husband.

The CP said “the command’s breakthrough came as a result of credible information received through technical intelligence, coupled with consistent, diligent and real time monitoring of the suspect.”

He urged members of the public to continue assisting the command with vital information in order to make Nasarawa a crime free state.
