Lagos PDP Chairman Regains Freedom From Abductors


January 29, (THEWILL) – Philip Aivoji, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has regained freedom from his abductors.

Aivoji was abducted by gunmen on Thursday evening, at the Ogere area of Ogun on the Ibadan-Lagos expressway while returning from the PDP South-West zonal meeting in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Lagos State spokesman of the PDP, Hakeem Amode, who confirmed the release, said Aivoji regained freedom after he had spent four days with the kidnappers.

“We use this opportunity to appreciate your prayers and to thank you all for your concerns and prayers,” Amode said.

The abductors had earlier contacted his family, demanding an N200m ransom but Amode would not confirm whether or not there was any payment before his release.

The party thanked security agencies and government authorities that facilitated his freedom.
