The state secretary of the association, Adamu Abubakar, told journalists in Lokoja on Saturday that Mr Damina was released in Abuja late night of May 7.
Mr Adamu said from Mr Damina’s account, he was released by men suspected to be from one of the security agencies and not kidnappers as earlier suspected.
He said that Mr Damina arrived at his Chikara home in Kogi in the early hours of Saturday to reunite with his family.
It would be recalled that Mr Adamu had announced to journalists in Lokoja on May 4, that Mr Damina was taken away from his house by eight men dressed in military camouflage.
