ASP Mukhtar Aliyu, the spokesman for the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in Kaduna State, said that Kukah was released by his abductors about 3p.m.
Aliyu said the traditional ruler was unhurt and had re-united with his family.
“On the issue of ransom paid before his release, I cannot confirm that.
“We are doing everything humanly possible to arrest the suspects”.
