The management of Kantinkwari Textiles Market has confirmed the release of 27 traders who were kidnapped on their way to Aba in Abia State.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the traders were kidnapped on Sunday, January 10, in Okene, Kogi State, en route to Aba to supply fabric materials.
Speaking to newsmen on Sunday in Kano, the spokesman of the Kantinkwari market, Mansur Haruna-Dandago, confirmed that the traders were released by after payment of undisclosed amount of ransom.
Mr Haruna-Dandago added that the released traders were on their way back to Kano.
“We communicated with some of them. All of them are released. They are fine and en route to Kano state.
“I can’t disclose amount paid to secure their release because that is not as important as the freedom of the traders. But, I can confirm to you that ransom was paid and we are grateful to Allah for their release.
“Let me also use this medium to thank everyone in the market for their financial and spiritual contributions towards the release of the kidnapped traders. We are also grateful to members of public for their prayers and goodwill,” he said.
