The General Manager (Public Relations) of the Nigeria Meteorological Agency, NiMET, Muntari Yusuf, who was kidnapped last Tuesday along Kaduna-Abuja expressway, has been released.Mr Yusuf was released Friday evening, the eve of his daughter’s wedding, after payment of undisclosed ransom. His daughter, Hassana Mukhtar Yusuf's wedding Fatiha was held on Saturday. at Barhim Housing Estate Jumuat Mosque in Katsina State.It was learnt that family members and well-wishers of the NiMET senior staff, rallied round to raise the money for the kidnappers, few days after he was taken into hostage.The kidnappers had demanded N50 million as ransom, in a recorded telephone conversation between Mr. Yusuf, his brother, Nura, and one of the abductors.But when the family successfully raised N6 million, the kidnappers bluntly rejected the offer, describing it as ‘rubbish’.Mr Yusuf was then heard in an emotion-laden voice directing his brother to withdraw N2 million from his account and sell off his Toyota car to augment the initial offer.In the conversation, he also cautioned them against taking the issue with levity or speaking harshly to his kidnappers.The post Kidnapped NIMET spokesman Muntari Yusuf, regains freedom on the eve of his daughters wedding appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
