The vice chairman of Zurmi LGA, Alhaji Abubakar Dauran, confirmed the development to Daily Trust at the weekend.

The twins, Hassana and Hussaina, 16, whose wedding was slated for December, were kidnapped in Dauran town in Zurmi local government area of the state on Tuesday, October 23.

They had visited their sister, Summaya, 20, concerning their wedding.

The kidnappers had demanded N150 million and later reduced it to N15 million with threats to kill one of them if not paid.
