The Emir of Kajuru Alhassan Adamu, has broken down in tears shortly after he was released following his kidnap about a day ago.
Adamu was speaking to a gathering of his subjects after his release but was seemingly overwhelmed by feelings.
He started saying, “People of Kajuru…” and then his emotions overcame him.
He covered his face with both hands to contain his emotions in a 21-second clip Daily Trust has seen.
His release on Monday evening reunited him with his subjects.
Bandits had abducted him from his private residence in the early hours of Sunday.
They had contacted the family to demand a ransom of N200 million on Monday but hours after this, the monarch marched back into his kingdom in Kaduna state.
Hid children, grandchildren, and some title holders of the emirate are still being held.
