IGP Says Olu Falae Was Released without Payment of Ransom



Solomon Arase

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, on Thursday said that no ransom was paid for the release of former Secretary of the Government of the Federation, Olu Falae.

Arase, who disclosed this to journalists in Akure while handing over Falae to his family, said the police would soon release further details on the rescue efforts.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mike Ogbodu, as well as other top officers of the force were also present at the forum.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Falae was kidnapped on Monday on his farm by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

The abductors had reportedly demanded N100 million initially as ransom before reducing this to N90 million.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Heard he trekked several kilometers to Owo before he met some security guards… how was he rescued???The kidnappers probably had a change of heart which led to his release.If he was truly rescued by the police,then the kidnappers should have been captured as well.#mythoughts
