WAMAKKO (SOKOTO STATE) – Alhaji Salihu Barade, the District Head of Wamakko in Sokoto State, who was recently kidnapped and released by his abductors, has urged government to enhance security in the country.
Barade was, however, released by his abductors on April 10, near the farm of the Emir of Gummi in Zamfara.
” There is the need for the improvement of security in Nigeria and not only around the traditional rulers,” he said.
Barade, who is also the younger brother of Gov. Aliyu Wamakko, expressed gratitude to God for securing his safe release.
” I cannot, however, tell you whether a ransom was paid or not as they seized all my telephone sets.
” We had no food for two days and I could not pray as there was no water in the place they took me to.” (NAN)
