The wife of the Chief of Staff to the Ondo State governor, Olugbenga Ale, has regained her freedom.
Mrs Ale and one other person were kidnapped on Thursday evening along the Ondo-Akure Expressway while travelling from Lagos to Akure.
The victims were, however, rescued on Saturday morning by men of the Ondo State Security Network also known as Amotekun Corps, reports say.
Local hunters and vigilantes also helped in the rescue mission, Amotekun commander Adetunji Adeleye said.
“We thank God for the achievement, it was not easy,” Adeyeye was qouted by Punch to have said.
“But we are are able to arrest some persons in connection with the matter.”
Adeleye also said some suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Israel Adeusi, who was killed by some gunmen on Thursday.
“We are closing in on the hoodlums. We also arrested some persons at Elegbeka in connection with the killing of the monarch,” Adeyeye said.
“But they are under interrogation and they are helping us with useful information.”
