Police Did Not Rescue Kidnapped ABU Students – Family
Kidnapped ABU students were not rescued by the police according to a family member Sadiq Ango who was reacting to a post by Bashir Ahmad, new media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari suggesting otherwise.
Sadiq said the rescue was facilitated by the payment of ransom which took 48 hours to negotiate.
“Lies… It took us 48 long hours of negotiations with the kidnappers to secure the release of our sister to us, NOT the police. Ransom was paid in full as negotiated with the three families involved,” he tweeted.

In a response, Ahmad apologised and pulled down the initial post which he claimed he got from a major news source.
