The former Deputy Governor of Nasarawa State Professor Onje Gye-Wado has been released by his abductors after N4m ransom was paid.

Gye-Wado was abducted last Thursday at his country home, Rinza, near Wamba, the headquarters of the Wamba local government area.

It was gathered that a ransom of N70m was demanded by the abductors but Gye-Wado’s family negotiated from N2m to N3.5m before eventually settling for N4m.

According to a family source: “They collected the ransom near Mada Hills Secondary School in Akwanga with  N200 recharge card. Then he was released near Angwan Chiyawa close to those hills between Akwanga and Nasarawa Eggon.”

Following his release Gye-Wado was taken to the palace of the paramount ruler of Wamba, Oriye Rindre, Justice Lawal Musa Nagogo.
