Bandits on Monday released Emir of Kajuru Alhaji Alhassan Adamu but kept his children including grand children that they were abducted together last week in captive.
One of the kingmakers of the Emirate Council, Dahiru Abubakar, confirmed the development to The Nation.
The Emir was released on Monday afternoon, few hours after bandits demanded N200 million ransom for the monarch and 10 other family members kidnapped with him.
Abubakar did not however say whether the N200 million ransom was paid or not before his release.
The Nation reliably gathered only the 85- year- old second class Emir was released with the bandits said to be holding on to other abductees.
The Emir, according to another source, addressed his subjects immediately he returned to Kajuru.
