The Labour Party House of Assembly candidate for Ahoada West in Rivers State, Boma Kasim-Agida, who was abducted by gunmen at the entrance of his hotel on his way back from a political rally in Ahoada West LGA of Rivers State on Tuesday last week, has been freed from captivity.

Recounting his ordeal, Boma told journalists that the postponement of the election played a role in his release.

He said;

“I stayed right 3 days with them, Tuesday to Friday, and they didn’t even say anything to me, it was almost like they were just waiting for instructions. No ransom was paid eventually they blindfolded me and dropped me around Amasoma road in Bayelsa state.

“Glory to God the election was postponed, I think that was what added to my release”

The police Public Relations Officer of the Rivers State Command, Grace Iringe-Koko, confirmed the development, adding that investigations are still ongoing and no arrests have been made.
