NEWS : Kidnapped former foreign affairs Minister Bagudu Hirse regains freedom



Bagudu Hirse, former aviation minister, who was abducted by gunmen in Kaduna on Sunday, November 20, has regained his freedom, his brother, John Hirse, has confirmed.

“Bagudu was released in the early hours of Saturday,” John, a retired permanent secretary in the federal civil service and currently District Head of Mangu, in Plateau, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos on Saturday.

He said that the former aviation minister  was “hale and hearty,” and thanked Nigerians for the prayers and words of encouragement “during the trying period”.

May God reward everyone who stood by us during the tough period,” he said.

John, however, did not give further details, and also refused to comment over whether a ransome was paid to the abductors.

Bagudu was abducted by gunmen at the Kaduna residence of Ambassador Mamman Daura, where he had gone to condole the family over the death of the former Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Ibrahim Dasuki.

Bagudu’s abduction took place a day after the release of Sheikh Yusuf, a Jos-based cleric and Administrative Secrertary of theJamaátu Nasril Islam (JNI), who was equally kidnapped in Kaduna.

The cleric was released on Saturday, November 19, after four days in the custody of his abductors.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out
there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips?
Many thanks!
