Freedom has finally come the way of member representing magajin-gari in the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Salisu Isa.

Isa, who was kidnapped along Birnin-Gwari road on Friday, has been released.

The chairman, house committee on information, Goro Shadalafiya disclosed this on Sunday.

He said Isa was released unharmed by his abductors on Saturday morning.

He appealed to Nigerians to be vigilant, saying security was the business of all.

He further called on the security agencies to improve on their surveillance especially in areas that are known for high level of insecurity.

“The state assembly has amended the kidnapping law so as to make it stiffer so that when a kidnapper is arrested and punished according to the law.

 “It will serve as a deterrent to others. According to the amended law, if the abducted person is found alive, the abductor is entitled to life imprisonment while the abductor will die by hanging if the abducted person dies in his/her custody,” he said.
