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.
