Kidnapped Bayelsa Ex-commissioner Regains Freedom

Kidnappers of a former Commissioner for Transport in Bayelsa State, Mrs. Marie Ebikake, have released her five days after she was abducted.
Ebikake was abducted last Sunday morning at her residence in Igbogene area of Yenagoa, the state capital, by gunmen numbering about 15.

She was freed at about 3am on Friday. It could not be ascertained if ransom was paid to the kidnappers before her release.

A family member confirmed that the Peoples Democratic Party chieftain had rejoined her family after being held hostage by her captors.

The family member, who said he was happy for her, noted that all he was interested in was her freedom and not how much was paid to get her out of captivity.

The family source pleaded anonymity.

He said “We are so happy that Madam Ebikake has been released. She was released early on Friday.  Before her release, we were worried as the kidnappers only called once and after that, we did not hear from them again.

“The situation heightened our fear and anxiety among family members. Now that she has been freed, we are happy.  I do not want to know whether ransom was paid or not.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, Bayelsa State Command, Asinim Butswat, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, confirmed her release in a telephone in a telephone with our correspondent on Friday.

He said that he did not have details of the terms of her release.

“I can confirm that the former commissioner has been freed and reunited with her family, but I do not have the details,” Butswat said.

Ebikake was kidnapped at her residence in Igbogene, Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.
