The victims were released on Wednesday after an undisclosed ransom payment. Among those released are three women, three male and an infant.
It was reported how bandits stormed the emir’s residence on July 11, 2021, and abducted him alongside 12 others. But he was released 24 hours after the abduction.
Confirming the release of the victims, a title holder in the emirate, Dan Iyan Kajuru Saidu Musa, said children and grand children of the emir were still in captivity.
The monarch had shed tears publicly when his subject welcomed him shortly after his release.
