A bride-to-be, Farmat Paul, who was abducted in her pastor’s house in Ngyong community of
Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State, on Sunday, has regained freedom.

She was abducted at the pastor’s residence where she was expected to spend the night before the wedding.

Daily Trust gathered that the victim was released on Monday night and soon after her release, the wedding ceremony which was suspended continued.

When contacted the State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ubah Gabriel Ogiba, on the release of the victim, told our correspondent that the victim had returned home but could not explain whether any ransom was paid.

On Monday, ASP Gabriel had said though there was no formal complaint to the police on the matter, they heard about it and swung into action to investigate the circumstances behind her disappearance.

He had said: “It may not be kidnapping because there was a time when a lady went to sleep in another man’s house and everybody was saying kidnapping. We are investigating her whereabouts but don’t rush to say kidnapping. We have swung into action.”

A source, who also confirmed the release to our correspondent, said ransom was paid but he could not confirm the specific amount.
