Five persons who were abducted in the Tunga Maje village in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have regained their freedom.
They were released in the early hours of Tuesday according to police sources. On Thursday last week, we had reported that gunmen stormed the community and took away some residents.
It could not be ascertained if they were released after any ransom was paid or if they were rescued by security operatives.
FCT Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Anjuguri Manzah did not give details but confirmed they are released.
“I can confirm they have been released,” he said simply.
