The Army has released the 63 suspects arrested on Saturday, in connection with the abduction of Prof. Kamene Okonjo, mother of the Finance Minister, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.


The suspects were arrested at Osanogoho, Ika South Local Government of Delta State and detained at the 4 Brigade Headquarters in Benin City, Edo State capital.

The Brigade’s Public Relations Officer, Capt Rose Managbe, confirmed the release of the suspects.
She said the Monarch of Agbor, Benjamin Keagborekuzi, sent three chiefs, led by Chief Gideon Okobia, to sign sureties for the release of the suspects.

Capt Managbe debunked allegations that the detainees paid N70,000 to secure their release and had to pay for their food while in detention.
