Wife of the chairman of Zamfara State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, Sanusi Gusau, has regained freedom.

Ramatu Yunusa was Kidnapped twelve days ago at her residence in Damba Community while she was nine months pregnant

She gave birth while in captivity.

HOMELAND NEWS gathered that the kidnappers insisted on the husband paying ransom for the woman and the new born baby.

Sources say, N10m was earlier paid for her release but the bandits insisted another N5m be paid after her delivery to secure her freedom.

Both the mother and the newborn baby are currently receiving medical treatment at a medical facility in Gusau, capital of Zamfara state.

Two weeks ago, Governor Bello Matawalle urged citizens to acquire weapons to defend themselves against bandits.

The outburst came after some persons, including Ramatu Yunusa, were kidnapped in what appeared like a return of banditry to the state.
