(Last Updated On: 2022-01-14)


Ex-Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Lawman Duruji, has been freed after rigorous financial negotiations with his abductors

This development was confirmed by his kinsman, Kingsley Chukwu, to PUNCH correspondent on Thursday.

Punch gathered that the ex-lawmaker, who is said to be running for the Ehime Mbano/ Ihitte Uboma/ Obowo Federal Constituency seat on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, spent five days in suspected kidnappers’ den.

The price paid for his freedom was not made known but it was gathered that his captors made an initial demand of N15m.

Chukwu said, “Lawman Duruji, who was abducted a few days ago in his hometown, has regained his freedom to the glory of God. Let this affliction pass us by. Let our God arise and let the enemies scatter. My youthful and mobile leader has been freed, thanks be to God.”
