Kidnapped Enugu monarch, Igwe Sunday Orji of Obom-Agbogugu of Awgu Local Government Area and his wife, Alice, have regained their freedom.

A family source said they set free by their captors Wednesday evening.

They were kidnapped, last Sunday evening, just after the Agbogugu-Ihe junction, along the Enugu-Portharcourt Expressway, while they were returning from the reception and Thanksgiving Mass in honour of the mother of the Catholic Bishop of Awgu Diocese.

A family member confided in our correspondent that an undisclosed ransom was paid. The daredevils suspected to be Fulani had in their initial contact with the family demanded N50m ransom; they later brought the amount down to N20m.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Enugu Police Command, SP Ebere Amaraizu confirmed their freedom Wednesday. 

 

“Yes, they have been freed, it’s true,” he said.
