Kidnapped NTA Akure female journalist freed

Olubunmi Oke, the female journalist with NTA Akure who was kidnapped on Thursday 21 as she returned home from work, has been released. Bunmi regained her freedom today Sunday March 24th.

“I confirm that she has been released. I spoke with her early this morning shortly after she was set free by her abductors. She was set free and abandoned in a bush near Ondo town, about 30 kilometres (19 miles) from Akure from where she boarded a lorry home. She is hale and hearty and happy to be back home."

 Rotimi Obamuwagun, vice president of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, told AFP.
Her abductors had asked for N8million but is is unclear if any ransom was paid before she was freed.
