The Lagos State Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Philip Aivoji, has been released by kidnappers who kept for four days.
Party spokesman, Alhaji Hakeem Amode, confirmed his release in a message on Monday.
“We use this opportunity to appreciate your prayers; and to thank you all for your concerns and prayers,” Amode said.
Aivoji was kidnapped on Thursday at Ogere area of Ogun on Ibadan-Lagos expressway.
The party chairman was returning from the PDP South-West zonal meeting in Ibadan, Oyo State on Thursday.
The abductors had earlier contacted his family, demanding for a 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.
