Professor Huzaifa Karfi, a lecturer at the Kano University of Science and Technology (KUST), has been released by kidnappers following his abduction last Wednesday.
The Associate Professor was abducted in Zaria when he went to deliver the ransom for the village head of Karfi in Takai Local Government Area of Kano, who had earlier been kidnapped when the gunmen invaded his village from Bauchi State through Ringim forest in Jigawa, killing six persons that attempted to rescue him.
The kidnappers upon receiving the ransom released the village head but held unto the lecturer.
It was however not revealed if a ransom was paid to secure the release of the professor.
