By Rasaq Bamidele
Abuja, Nigeria. Dec. 9, 2017 (AltAfrika)-There are indications that the top Nigerian politician, Senator Ayo Arise, who was abducted on Sunday might have been released by his captors.
A source, who told our reporter of the development, however said the details about his freedom were still sketchy as of the time he spoke to Alternativeafrika.
Senator Ayo Arise, a former member of the Senate in Nigeria, was abducted six days ago by unknown gunmen on his way to Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria after attending an event in his home state of Ekiti in the south western axis of the country.
His abductors later demanded 80 million naira as ransom for his release.
A source close to the family confided in our reporter that, “with our efforts so far, our man would be released very soon.”
