A source who is privy to the rescue operations told the News Agency of Nigeria that three persons were arrested on Friday in relation to the kidnap incident in Maiduguri, the state capital, and Kano State, while on the move to collect a N20 million ransom demanded by the kidnappers.
“The boy, who was kept in Albarka Hotel in Maiduguri by a lady, was rescued and handed over to the family.
“It was after collecting the money that our IRT personnel from Kano arrested her. After her arrest, they promptly told us where the boy was kept. So we quickly mobilised our men and cordoned off the hotel in Maiduguri.
“She was the one that went to the school and picked him”, the source said.
Edet Okon, Police Public Relations Officer of the Borno Command, confirmed to NAN that the boy has been released.
He also stated that the suspects have been arrested and would be brought to justice through the legal process.
Okon said: “I can confirm that the son of the APC Chairman that was kidnapped has been rescued and the suspects were also arrested. The suspects would be investigated and charged to court.”
