The kidnapped brother of the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Frederick Shaibu, was Wednesday released by his abductors in Benin.
While the amount paid for ransom was not disclosed, a family source confirmed on Wednesday evening that he was released and in good health.
“I can tell you authoritatively that Frederick has been released to the family and he is in good health. The family is happy to have him and he is also excited to rejoin his family after his ordeal in the hands of his abductors,” the source said.
Recall, Shaibu was kidnapped by gunmen while driving his kids to school in Irhiri, Benin on Monday.
