The mother of the Abia State Accountant General, Gabriel Onyedilefu, Mrs. Rose Onyedilefu, who was kidnapped last week, has regained her freedom. The 70-year-old woman was kidnapped by gunmen last Sunday at Ikem Nvosi village in Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area on her way back from a church service.
It was gathered that the septuagenarian was released somewhere around Umueze Nvosi village in the same Isiala Ngwa North.
While it was not clear if there was any ransom paid by the victim’s family, a source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the accountant general’s mother was rescued by a good Nigerian, who saw her wandering along the road at about 5am at Umueze Village.
The source said the old woman had been re-united with her son (Gabriel) in Umuahia, the state capital immediately after she regained her freedom.
