Mrs Margaret Emefiele, the wife of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria who was kidnapped 48 hours ago has been released by the abductors. The family source said she was rescued due to the gallantry of the Armed Forces, Police and Security Forces in Ugoneki near Benin City and she is currently recuperating in Government house in Asaba.
According to mainstream media, the story was delayed due to an appeal from Emefiele family about the sensitivity of the negotiations for her release.
Kidnappers demanded N1.5billion as ransom for her release. This would be one the high profile case of kidnapping in recent times
