Three persons kidnapped in Enugu last weekend by suspected Fulani herdsmen have regained their freedom.

They were released after paying a ransom said to be less than N2 million.

The kidnappers who were armed with AK-49 according to the victims had to settle for less when it became clear that the initial N10 million and above which they asked for wasn’t forthcoming.

“They were unmistakenly Fulani herdsmen and they were heavily armed; they also wore masks.

According to the victims, they had gone to see some portions of land for sale near the Vivian Estate when suddenly the Fulani herdsmen emerged and marched us into the bush.

“We were in the bush for three days without food, water nor a place to sleep.

“The heavy rain on Sunday evening in and around Enugu capital city fell on us. They had raincoats and we’re prepared for the rain but we had nothing.

“We only ate once and that was a loaf of bread and a soft drink for three of us. We drank from ponds because we were so thirsty.”

They narrated that their case was made softer when one of them contacted his mother who spoke both Hausa and Fulani fluently.
