The driver of Adamawa United Football Club, Kabiru Mohammed, who was abducted last week has regained his freedom.
SaharaReporters gathered that Kabiru was released on Wednesday night after his family paid N1 million to the kidnappers.
The driver was abducted on Friday around 6:45 after gunmen attacked the club’s players along Benin-Ore Expressway in Benin City.
The players travelling to Lagos for a football match scheduled for last Sunday were dispossessed of their phones, money and food during the robbery.
The gunmen had earlier demanded N50 million, but later reduced it N10 million and later to N1 million.
