Oba Benjamin Oso
The traditional ruler was abducted while working on his farm in the community on Thursday evening.
The kidnappers had earlier demanded N20 million ransom which the family said it could not afford and pleaded for it to be reduced.
A source close to the palace informed newsmen that Oba Osho was released late on Sunday night at a bush in one of the neighbouring communities.
”Yes, Kabiyesi has been freed on Sunday night by the gunmen after the family paid about N2 million from the N20 million initially demanded by the gunmen. The money was raised by many people and I have someone who contributed to it.
The spokesman for the State Police Command, ASP Sunday Abutu, confirmed the release of the traditional ruler after a manhunt by officers of the command.
