The District head of Daura in Katsina State and father-in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide de camp (ADC), Musa Umar, has regained freedom.
According to Channels Television, a security source within the Presidency who craved anonymity said Umar was rescued in Kano on Monday.
Umar, a former customs officer, is reported to be the father of Fatima Musa, wife of Mohammed Abubakar, Buhari’s ADC.
Concise News reports that witnesses had said that the kidnappers stormed his residence at 7pm on Wednesday and sporadically shot into the air, scaring the hell out of bystanders, who scampered for safety.
Umar had just returned from the mosque where he took part in the evening prayer when the incident happened.
He was sitting in front of his house with some people when the gun-toting men came.
A witness reported that the kidnappers came in a Peugeot 406 saloon car.
