According to Sani, the victim was held inside a bush by his abductors and beaten silly.
Sani, who is a human rights activist, said that the armed abductors of Muhammed gave an ultimatum for the demanded ransom, failing which he would be killed.
Sani wrote, “At last, we have been able to secure the release of Abubakar Muhammed from the hands of his kidnappers in Kaduna after ransom was paid.
“He was thoroughly beaten by the armed abductors who kept him in the bush and gave an ultimatum.
“His wife delivered triplets – all boys in – his absence.”
