Abducted Yola hospital proprietor released

The proprietor of a hospital in Yola, who was abducted last Sunday, has been released.

It was learnt on Saturday morning that Bala, the proprietor and Medical Director of Aisha Hospital, Ngurore, Yola, regained his freedom Friday evening.

The immediate past Medical Director of government-owned Specialist Hospital, Yola, rejoined his family hale and hearty.

A member of the family who did not wish to be named, also objected to request for details surrounding the medical doctor’s release.

The family source would not say whether or not ransom was paid to secure the doctor’s freedom but admitted that the abductors had earlier reached to the family in demand for a ransom.

He would not say how much was demanded.

Bala was abducted last Sunday, December 12, by gunmen who stormed the Aisha Hospital in Ngurore, a satellite community on the Yola-Numan highway, and took him away.

The Adamawa State Police Command which had at that time spoken of moves to rescue the medical proprietor, said Saturday morning that he had indeed been released.

The state Police spokesman, DSP Sulaiman Nguroje, said, “Yes, I can confirm to you that the medical doctor has been freed.”
