Oniba of Iba, Oba Yushau Oseni, 73, who regained his freedom three weeks after he was kidnapped on 16 July from his palace has narrated his release and he got home.

Oba Oseni was quoted by The Guardian: “I thank God for sparing my life in the hands of the kidnappers. My family, indeed, paid ransom to the kidnappers but I don’t know the exact amount. I was released around 7:45p.m. on Saturday. They left me alone in a canoe in one of the creeks.

“Because I know how to paddle a canoe, I was able to navigate my way to Iba area. After paddling for awhile, I saw a man standing by the bank, who told me I was in Iba and from there I located my way to the palace in boxers and singlet.”

When asked how he was treated, he responded: “I was treated well and well-fed.”
