Abducted Labour Party Chairman’s Mother Released
Elizabeth Omotosho, the 71-year-old mother of the National Chairman of the Labour Party, Dr. Mike Omotosho, has been released by her abductors.
The septuagenarian, who reportedly walked home on Friday night at about 11 pm, was said to be in good condition of health.
A sister to the National Chairman of the Labour Party, Titilayo Omotosho, who had lived together with the old woman before her abduction, confirmed the release.
However, she did not confirm if any ransom was paid on her mother or not.
The LP chairman in a statement on Saturday, confirmed that his mother had regained freedom on Friday night and that she was unharmed.
Omotosho said, “May the Lord uproot this evil scourge in our society. My mum is well and was not harmed in any way; for that we are grateful.”
Four gunmen had kidnapped the septuagenarian at her family house in Ilorin, Kwara State, between 7pm and 8pm on Sunday.
The abductors later demanded N100m before she could be released.
