Abducted Kannywood director regains freedom

Kidnapped filmmaker, Salisu Muazu including two others have regained their freedom just two days after they were kidnapped by unknown gunmen along Kaduna-Jos road on Thursday.

On Sunday, a brother to the victim, Alhaji Sani Muazu confirmed their release to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano.

Sani Muazu reported that all the three victims were freed after paying the N10m ransom as demanded by the kidnappers.

According to Sani, “We paid the ransom and we were misled on where we could reach our brothers and while searching, a truck driver, who saw them, led us to where we could find them.”

He went further to describe the situation and the experience of trying to secure their release to be a tough one for both the captives and their relatives.

Remember that both brothers and two other people were returning from a conference that took place in Kaduna where they were stopped by the armed kidnappers on their way to Jos.

Luckily, Sani narrowly escaped while his brother, Salisu and two other friends were held captive by the kidnappers, who later demanded N10m ransom.

Salisu and Sani are both filmmakers and television experts who have been in the Kannywood industry since the inception of the industry.
