The Bauchi State Police Command on Saturday said that the Kidnapped Businessman, Alhaji Manu Soro, had regained his freedom.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Haruna Mohammed, confirmed this in a text message he sent to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Bauchi.
Mohammed said Soro was released by his captors at around 7a.m. on Saturday.
“Information at our disposal has revealed that the kidnapped businessman, Alhaji Manu Soro, has been released at 0700hrs on Saturday.
