Kidnappers release Africa’s Youngest Billionaire Mohammed Dewji

Africa’s youngest billionaire Mohammed Dewji has returned home after he was released by his abductors.

“I have returned home safely,” Mohammed shared in a tweet from his company METL Group’s account.

He thanked the Tanzanian authorities for working toward his safe return, and people all around the world for their prayers.

I thank Allah that I have returned home safely. I thank all my fellow Tanzanians, and everyone around the world for their prayers. I thank the authorities of Tanzania, including the Police Force for working for my safe return.” — Mohammed Dewji (3:15AM, Dar es Salaam)

 

It is unclear if the billionaire was rescued by the police or if he was released only after a ransom was paid.

His family had offered to pay 1 billion Tanzanian shilling ($440,000) to anyone who could provide information that would lead to his release.

Mohammed was abducted by gunmen in Dar es Salaam on October 11.
