Madam Ebifieghe Igiri, 105, mother of Wilberforce Igiri, running-mate to Timipre Sylva in the forthcoming governorship election in Bayelsa, has regained freedom from kidnppers.

Police Public Relations Officer in Bayelsa, ASP Asinim Butswat, told newsmen in Yenagoa that the woman was released by her captors on Nov. 9 at about 10p.m.

“She was released at Ayama Waterside, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa; she is hale and hearty and has since been reunited with her family. Efforts have been intensified to arrest the abductors; investigation is ongoing,” he said.

The police was however silent on whether any ramsom was paid to secure the release of the centenarian.

Igiri was kidnapped from her hometown, Foropa, Southern-Ijaw Local government Area, Bayelsa on Oct. 29.
