Chief Olu Falae regains freedom
The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Olu Falae, has regained freedom from his abductors.
Falae, who was released today, four days after being allegedly kidnapped by some Fulani herdsmen on his farm in Ilado village, Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State, said it was a hell being in the kidnappers’ den.
In his discussion with the state Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, who paid him a visit at his Oba Ile residence, the former finance minister recalled that when he told the kidnappers that his family could raise N2m against the N100m the abductors demanded, they rejected it.
Speaking with journalists on the release of the National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party, Arase, who was reportedly directed to move to the state on the instruction of President Muhammadu Buhari to secure Falae’s release, said he was happy that the septuagenarian was rescued alive and in good health.
