A source said, “They are all alive and we have spoken with all of them. Because they were released late, we decided that they spend the night in Kaduna city so they can be transported to Zaria in the morning.”

The source also confirmed the payment of ₦10 million for their release, adding that some of the victims were dropped off behind the Nigerian Air Force Base at the Mando area of Kaduna.
