The two abducted Councillors of Safana Local government area in Katsina have finally regained freedom after spending 26 days in captivity, according to a report.
The Councillors, Hussaini Wanzam (finance) and Bishir Dan Jikko (water and sanitation) were abducted on their way to Batsari town after close of work. The captives later place a N50 million ransom for both.

He said, what matters most was that they have been released and presently being examined at the hospital before they will be reunited with their families later today.
