The traditional ruler had been abducted on Sunday around 5pm, making him spend a night in the custody of the bandits.

Although 13 members of his family are still in captivity, palace sources claimed that no ransom was paid to secure his release.

A member of the royal house in Kajuru, who pleaded anonymity, told Daily Trust that the bandits asked for forgiveness before releasing the 85-year-old monarch to relatives and members of the emirate council.

The source, who was part of those who received the Emir, revealed that the bandits called them through the emir’s phone number shortly after Asr (sunset prayer) and asked them to prepare to receive him.

He narrated that on getting to the location near Gengere community, three of the bandits, heavily armed and in military uniform, apologized for abducting the emir and sought forgiveness from him.

”They told us to go with him while negotiations for the other 13 people will continue tomorrow (Tuesday),” he said.
