The kidnapped traditional ruler of Jaba Chiefdom in Kaduna State, Gyet

Maude has regained his freedom.

He was released by his abductors on Wednesday evening after spending

two days with his abductors

The 83-year-monarch of Jaba Chiefdom was kidnapped on Monday by

gunmen suspected to be kidnappers on his farm at Gitata community in

Nasarawa State.

The kidnappers yesterday demanded a N100 million ransom before they

will release the traditional Ruler.

Although the police authorities and Kaduna state government are yet to

confirm the release of the first class traditional ruler, a source within the

traditional council, Anthony Maude, said that he returned to his palace

along with some of his aides.

The source, however, did not say if any ransom was paid or if the royal

father was rescued by security operatives.
