WITHIN NIGERIA reports that Garba and his three-year-old son were abducted on Friday at a wedding ceremony at his home in Zungeru, Wushishi Local Government Area of the state.
According to a family source, the abductors phoned the family on Sunday evening and demanded the ransom before releasing him and his three-year-old kid.
