Kidnapped Edo PDP Chairman regains freedom

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Dr. Tony Aziegbemi, who was abducted on March 15 in Benin, has regained his freedom.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that Aziegbemi joined the family at 3am on Tuesday after 10 days in captivity.

Mr. Clem Aziegbemi, on behalf of the family, said the PDP leader was released unhurt.

“As a member of the Aziegbemi family, we say thank you all for your great show of love and solidarity with us all through the period of the adoption of our beloved son, brother, cousin, and leader, Dr. Tony Aziegbemi.

“Thank you, all. We are most grateful for all your valuable contributions through prayers and steadfastness. God bless,” he said.

Dr. Aziegbemi was ambushed at the Bishop Edokpolor Boulevard Junction, Off Country Home, GRA Benin City, while returning from Government House, where he held a meeting with Gov. Godwin Obaseki.

His abduction came less than a month after his party conducted a primary election for the Sept. 21 off-cycle governorship election in the state.

When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the Police Command in Edo, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, said an official statement would soon be issued on the development. (NAN)
