Okonjo Kidnap: Army Releases 63 Suspects

The 63 suspects arrested last Saturday at Osanogoho, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State, in connection with the abduction of Prof. Kamene Okonjo, mother of Minister of Finance, by men of the Nigerian Army from the 4 Brigade Headquarters in Benin, have been released.

The Public Relations Officer of 4 Brigade, Captain Rose Managbe, who confirmed their release, said the Dien of Agbor sent three chiefs to sign surety for their release.

Captain Managbe also debunked allegations that the detainees had to pay for their food while in detention, just as she denied that some of them paid N70, 000 each to secure their release.

Leader of the delegation, Chief Gideon Okobia, also confirmed to newsmen that the monarch of Agbor sent them to secure the release of the detainees.
