Mr Yakubu Lawal, Nasarawa State Commissioner of Information, Culture and Tourism who was abducted by gunmen, has regained freedom.

DSP Ramhan Nansel, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), confirmed this on Friday in Lafia.

Lawal was kidnapped at his residence in Nassarawa-Eggon Local Government Area (LGA) by gunmen on Monday, at around 9:45 pm.

According to the PPRO, the Commissioner regained his freedom around 6:00 pm on Friday and was reunited with his family

He said Yakubu Lawal was also taken to the hospital for medical examination.

No suspect has been arrested in connection with the abduction but said the police would not relent until the perpetrators are arrested.

Nansel, however, said that the police command was not aware whether any ransom was paid before the release of the commissioner.
He explained that the commissioner was released due to sustained pressure from the combined team of security agencies.
