The abducted Emir of Bungudu, Alhaji Hassan Attahiru, has regained freedom after spending one month in captivity.

The monarch was abducted along Kaduna- Abuja Highway following an attack on his motorcade.

A Special Adviser to Governor Bello Matawalle, Gazali Shehu Ahmad, confirmed the release of the monarch in a Facebook post.

 “On behalf of the family and Bungudu Emirate, we wish to thank everyone for the prayers and support during this trying time,” he wrote.

“We appreciate all the efforts of Kaduna State Government throughout this challenging period. Our immense gratitude to the Zamfara State Government in playing a key role to see our father returned home safely.”

“We salute the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) and Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) for the support in facilitating the release of the Emir.”

“We wish to plead with the public to respect the privacy of the Emir in the coming weeks as he receives medical attention and post-trauma management.”
