Bungudu Emirate Council in Zamfara state has announced the return home of their emir, Sarkin Fulanin Bungudu, Hassan Atto, 32 days after he was kidnapped.

The emir was kidnapped in mid-September with his police orderly on the Kaduna-Abuja highway while they were travelling to Abuja. The gunmen killed another police officer attached to the emir during the incident .

A statement issued on Sunday by the emirate council did not however say whether the emir was released by the bandits on payment of a ransom, or rescued by security personnel.
A nephew of the emir, who is also an aide of the Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, confirmed the release of the monarch.

“They’re presently in Kaduna with some family members,” he said.
