“We sent representatives to pick him up. After the abductors counted the money, they released him to his relatives. However, that was after so much delay to ensure that there were no security personnel around. Adamawa United

“He was abducted on Friday at about 6.45pm and spent about six days with the abductors. That is why we have asked him to stay with a relative in Enugu. This is so he could get proper rest. He sounded fine and healthy but we want him to get two days rest. This is necessary because of the stress he had gone through. Adamawa United
