They were, thereafter, whisked to an unknown destination while on their way to Jos, the state capital.

The abductors had initially contacted the family and demanded N10 million as ransom and, also threatened to kill them if the money was not paid on time.

A family source, on Friday, disclosed that the duo were later released at about 8:30 p.m. on Thursday after the payment of the ransom.

The source added that they were picked up by their relatives where they were abducted.

“The kidnapped Rev. Dr Nuhu Bakwa and a friend Pastor, were released at about 8:30p.m on Thursday after payment of the ransom.

“The victims were dropped by the kidnappers at the same spot they were kidnapped: a filling station at Maraba Jama, close to the NDLEA checkpoint.

“The two pastors were maltreated and wounded; they could not walk properly due to the severe beating.

“They are presently receiving medical attention,” he said.

Meanwhile, in their characteristic manner, the Plateau State Commissioner of Police, CP Bartholomew Onyeka, has said men of his Command were making concerted efforts to track down perpetrators of the crime.
