However, the details of the release is still sketchy as Ghgossip can’t assert whether ransom was paid or not.
A statement released by the NMA read;
“The State Officer Council (SOC) of Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Kogi, wishes to update all concerned that our member, Dr Solomon Nidiamaka, who was kidnapped on July 19, regained his freedom from the cruel hands of kidnappers yesterday.

In other news, Mr. Ralphs Okey Nwosu, the National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), has expressed regret that numerous political parties in the country will continue to lose corrupt politicians to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Nwosu, speaking from his country home in Awka on Wednesday, said it is not surprising that many politicians, particularly those in the National Assembly, have been flocking to the APC.
He expressed concern that his party, which he regarded as the country’s third most popular political party, had lost some of its lawmakers to the ruling APC, claiming that the ruling party had never hidden its desire to recruit corrupt politicians.
