By Justina Asishana, Minna

The wives of the District Head of Zungeru, Wushishi Local Government Area of Niger State (Madakin Zungeru), Mallam Mustapha Madaki who was abducted by gunmen some weeks ago have regained their freedom.

The two women were released after they had paid N5 million, 100 handsets and five Bajaj motorcycles as ransom.

However, the District Head who was abducted alongside his wives is yet to regain his freedom as the abductors have demanded more money before they would release him.

The amount being demanded was not disclosed by members of the community who are currently involved in the negotiation

 The Nation gathered that the community raised N5 million out of the N10 million initially demanded by the abductors.

A source in the community stated that negotiation is still ongoing to secure the release of the District Head.  After their release, the two wives were admitted to a medical centre for treatment and observation.
