The retiree regained his freedom a day after the hoodlums kidnapped him in his home, according to DAILY POST.

The former NDLEA officer was abducted after NDLEA officers arrested a 19-year-old suspected drug dealer, Mngunengen Achir, in Aliade, headquarters of the Gwer East Local Government Area of the State.

The 19-year old suspect was arrested with 5.5 kilogrammes of cannabis and 112 grams of Diazepam on October 6 in Aliade.

The hoodlums demanded for the release of the suspect in exchange for the former NDLEA officer, a request that was jettisoned by the agency.

The former NDLEA officer, however, was later released unconditionally.

He stated these in reaction to reports and a live TV programme where “two persons supposedly representing Asiwaju Support Group and Osinbajo Support Group were pitched against each other.”
