Mrs. Nwosu was whisked away in a boat by armed kidnappers who stormed their residence in the Amuwo Odofin area of Lagos at about 2am on Monday, September 14.

“She was released over-night somewhere in Lagos,” a source close to Mr. Nwosu told News Express minutes ago.

The Management of Sun however confirmed that Mrs Nwosu was released in the early hours of today, adding that “the kidnappers had dropped her off near Zenith Bank by Festac Bridge and sped off with their boat.”

Festac shares a boundary with Amuwo Odofin.
