An ex-minister, senator Iyabo Anisulowo, who was kidnapped last Wednesday in Ogun State has regained her freedom.
Police said on Tuesday evening that Mrs. Anisulowo was rescued at Gbegbelawo village, a suburb of Olorunda town, located in Yewa North local government of the state.
The Ogun State Command Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said that the 65-year-old was rescued at about 7.00pm.
He said two suspected kidnappers were arrested during the rescue operation.
Mrs. Anisulowo was abducted six days ago while returning from her farm in Sawonjo in Yewa South local government area of the state.
Her kidnappers demanded N200million as ransom, while the Nigeria Police offered a N5 million reward for information leading to the former minister’s rescue.
Details of how the former minister regained her freedom are yet unclear.
