Kidnappers release wife of CBN governor

The wife of the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mrs Margaret Emefiele, who was kidnapped yesterday, has been released by her abductors.

According to family sources she was rescued “due to the gallantry of the Armed Forces, Police and Security Forces”, in Ugoneki near Benin City and is currently recuperating in Government House, Asaba.

It is unclear if any ransom was paid for her release but reports yesterday said her abductors had demanded the sum of N1.5 billion.
