THE wife and seven-month-old child of Zamfara ex-councillor Babangida Haruna have regained their freedom after being held captive for more than two days.

Haruna made the announcement through his Facebook page on Friday evening.

“Alhamdulillah, Glory be to Allah, my wife and my baby regained freedom. Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah,” he said.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) for the Zamfara State Police Command Mohammed Shehu did not respond to inquiries from The ICIR as of the time of filing this report.

Haruna did not respond to inquiries from The ICIR on details of the release of his wife and child.

Gunmen had invaded Haruna’s residence in Gusau in the early hours of Wednesday and abducted his wife and seven-month-old son.
