The Police Command in Benue has confirmed the release of the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr Mathew Abo, who was abducted at his residence in Zaki-Biam on Sept. 24.

The Benue state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Sewuese Anene, confirmed the development on Thursday to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Makurdi via a text message.

Anene said Abo was released in the early hours of Thursday and has been reunited with his family.

Abo had spent 10 days in captivity before regaining his freedom.

NAN recalls that gunmen came on four motorcycles at about 8 p.m, ordered everyone in the house, including the commissioner’s wife and children, to lie face down and took him away to an unknown destination on one of the motorcycles.
