Madam Beauty Siasia, who was abducted on November 16, 2015, was released by her abductors along the East- West Road on Saturday morning.
The Bayelsa Police Command said that the kidnap victim, Samson Siasia’s mother aged 72, was dropped off at about 1.30 am on Saturday without any ransom.
Mr Asinim Butswat, (ASP), Police Spokesman for Bayelsa Police Command who confirmed the development said the kidnappers freed the victim following a clampdown on their location by men of Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the Command.
He said that the Police was ‘cautious and professional’ in the operation to ensure that the hostage was freed unhurt.
“She is hale and hearty and has been reunited with her family. The Police has intensified efforts to arrest the fleeing suspects,” Butswat said.
The gunmen had stormed the family residence at Odoni community of Sagbama and forcefully whisked away Siasia on a motorcycle.
It will be recalled that the kidnappers had demanded a ransom of N150m million and later reduced the demand to N32 million nine days after her kidnap, but the family told them that they were only able to raise N600,000.
