The wife and child of a reporter with the Voice of America, VOA, Malam Nasir Birnin-Yero,who were kidnapped, have regained freedom.

BLUE VOICE RADIO  reported that they were kidnapped by gunmen on Wednesday.


A member of staff of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), was killed in the process of the kidnap.
Their release was confirmed by the VOA’s reporter, Malam Nasir Birnin-Yero, on Saturday in Kaduna.

Birnin-Yaro told News Agency of Nigeria that they were released at 9:00 pm on Friday at Sabon Birni, a village near Kaduna International airport.

“When the abductors contacted me they demanded N12 million as the ransom for their release.

“The abductors told me they came to kidnap me but they didn’t find me, so if I want to see my family I must pay the money or I will never see them.


“But we pleaded with them and they later agreed to take N2 million which we paid before they were released,’’ he said.
