The kidnapped wife of Chief Olugbenga Ale, chief of staff of the Governor of Ondo, has been freed from the kidnappers.
According to The Nation, local hunters working with members of the Amotekun Corps have secured the woman’s release.
Chief Ale’s wife was kidnapped on Thursday night when she was returning from Lagos on the Ondo-Akure highway.
She was released after about two days in the kidnappers’ lair.
A source said the woman was released Saturday morning after hunters and other security agencies arrived at the place where the kidnappers were holding their victims.
The source said that some suspects have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping.
According to the source: “I can confirm to you that the wife of the Chief of Staff has obtained her freedom and is heading to Akure. She was released without paying the ransom as Amotekun and local hunters rescued her ”.
Amotekun Corps commander Chief Adetunji Adeleye, who confirmed the release of Ms Ale, said it was too early to reveal how the rescue operation was carried out.
