Five children of a former Accountant General of Zamfara State, Abubakar Bello Furfuri, have regained their freedom from the hands of armed bandits, PRNigeria can authoritatively report.
They were released on Monday, 7 November, 2022, exactly five months and a day after terrorists had abducted them.
PRNigeria gathered from local sources in the North West that a huge amount was paid as ransom to facilitate the victims’ release.
