EKO HOT BLOG reports that the former Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) Secretary, Alhaji Sani Toro has been released days after being kidnapped by hoodlums on his way to Bauchi from Abuja.
The news of his release was relayed to newsmen by a family source who said the former Bauchi State Commissioner of Sports was released late last night.
However, this online news platform could not ascertain if any ransom was paid before his release.
It would be recalled that Alhaji Sani Toro, former Assistant Coach of the Nigeria Super Eagles, Garba Yila and one of their friends, were said to have been kidnapped while on their way back to Bauchi from Abuja where they went to attend the wedding of the son of former NFF President, Aminu Maigari, which took place on Saturday.
They were said to have left Abuja at about some minutes past 5.00pm and were reportedly kidnapped at about 7.30pm.
The kidnappers had demanded N150 million as ransom before they are released.
