Kidnapped Lagos monarch regains freedom

The Oniba of Iba in Lagos State, Oba Yushau Oseni, who was kidnapped some weeks ago, has regained his freedom.

He was freed by his kidnappers on Saturday evening according to sources close to the family.

It could, however, not be confirmed by Sunday Tribune on Saturday night if any ransom was paid for his release.

The abductors had, two weeks ago, demanded for N500 million ransom to release him.

The 74-year-old first-class monarch was kidnapped inside his palace on the night of July 16.

In the process of kidnapping him, two persons were reportedly killed, while one of his wives was injured. She has since been discharged from the hospital.
