The Two Germans Kidnapped In Kaduna State, Nigeria, Have Been Freed!

A German archaeologist, Peter Breunig, and his colleague, Johannes Buringer, who were kidnapped in Kaduna State, have been freed. They were released last night and no ransom was paid, though initially, the kidnappers demanded a N60million ransom.

It will be recalled that the Germans were kidnapped on Wednesday in Jenjela village, Kagarko emirate of Kagargo Local Government Area of Kaduna State and two hunters who saw the drama and wanted to save them were killed by the kidnappers.

According to the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, the professor didn’t go along with his security details to the site where he was kidnapped.

He said, ''Though the German archaeologists have police officers attached to them for their protection at the NOK Archaeology Research Project Centre, they did not go with the policemen to the excavation site where they were kidnapped.

   ''The Nigeria Police Force, while assuring all Nigerians and foreign nationals in the country of their safety, wishes to implore them to always request and obtain police escort to protect them any time they are embarking on research, mining and related endeavours outside the towns and cities across the country.'' He added.
