The Emir of Kajuru, Alhassan Adamu has regained freedom.
The 10 members of his family are still being held.
He was released on Monday barely 24 hours after his kidnap with 10 members of his family.
The kidnappers had earlier reportedly demanded a ransom of N200 million, upon which the Emirate Council had pleaded with them to release the aged Emir.
Spokesperson of Kaduna state police command, ASP Mohammed Jalige who confirmed to newsmen in Kaduna, did not say whether the requested ransom was paid to secure his release
