The wife of the late Olukoro of Koro Ekiti in Kwara State, General Segun Aremu-Cole (retd), along with two others who were abducted, have been freed.
According to reports, they were released late on Monday.
“The news just received from home confirms that Olori and the girl have been released and have returned to Koro about 30 minutes ago,” said Chief Samuel Ayobola, the Asiwaju of Koro, to National Pilot.
Beyond Boders recalls that the monarch was tragically killed by the kidnappers as he was getting ready for dinner on February 1, 2024.
The attackers stormed the palace around 9 pm, taking the monarch’s wife and two others with them after the fatal shooting.
Initially, the kidnappers demanded a ransom of N100 million, but later reduced it to N40 million.
