Bandits have released Sadiq, son of the chairman of the Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF), Prof. Ango Abdullahi.

He was abducted along other passengers in the Abuja-Kaduna bound train on March 28, 2022.

An undisclosed amount of ransom was reportedly paid before the terrorists released him.

It was learnt that Sadiq, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain was among passengers in the Business Class coach of the train, when the bandits struck.

Before his abduction, Sadiq had on February 5, 2022, defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP.

A former deputy governor of Zamfara State, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala, was among the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers, who was shot by the terrorists on that fateful evening.

A member of the victim’s family said he was released on Friday.
