Kwara APC chairman, secretary

Freedom came the way of kidnapped chairman and Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kwara State, Hon. Ishola Balogun Fulani and Chief Bode Adekanye on Saturday.

Balogun-Fulani and Adekanye were abducted by gunmen between Lokoja and Okene on Friday while returning to Ilorin from Abuja.

Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed confirmed their release via his Twitter handle.

The Governor wrote: “I have just been informed that the Kwara APC Chairman and the scribe have been released unharmed by their captors. While I rejoice with their families, friends and party members, I hold that we must work harder to end the spate of kidnapping.”

It was earlier reported that the kidnappers had gotten in touch with the family of Balogun-Fulani and demanded for a N50 million ransom. A source in Kwara APC however said the money was negotiated down to N10 million, which the kidnappers allegedly accepted.

It is not yet clear if the money was paid before their release.
