WARRI— KIDNAPPERS of Mrs. Marian Onoyume, wife of Vanguard correspondent in Rivers State, Mr. Jimitota Onoyume, released her on Thursday, after she had spent three harrowing nights in their den.

Mrs. Onoyume, a teacher, was seized, on Monday, at Eku, Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta State, from her residence, as she was driving her two daughters to school in her Nissan Quest bus.

A joyful Onoyume in a text message confirming her release, said: “I announce the safe release of my darling wife, Mrs. Marian Onoyume, who was abducted on Monday.

“They said they were misinformed by their linkman about my financial capacity. They were very considerate. My wife said they were very kind-hearted. They had planned to delay the release till 8.00 pm today (Thursday) because of heavy presence of security men in my community and the entire Ethiope East Local Government Area.”
