Secretary-General of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) Mr. Anthony Porole, who was kidnapped about a week ago has regained freedom.
Reports revealed on Thursday that he was released Wednesday evening, about a week after he was abducted from his home in Biara Community.
Around 8:30pm on June 28 in his compound, unknown gunmen started shooting sporadically, before whisking him away to an unknown destination.
In a statement signed by Sunny Zorvah, MOSOP Publicity Secretary, the group commended individuals and the security agencies for their efforts in ensuring the release of the MOSOP scribe.
The movement also called on security agencies to redouble their efforts in tackling insecurity and criminality in Ogoni land and other parts of the State.
