Freed Ekiti monarch hospitalised

The Obadu of Ilemeso Ekiti, Oba David Oyewumi, who was kidnapped by suspected gunmen last week Thursday at his palace, has regained freedom from captivity.

Oba Oyewumi was kidnapped by gunmen who scaled the fence and invaded his apartment around 8.30 pm.

Last Saturday, the kidnappers demanded N20 million ransom on the Oba.

Ekiti State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Sunday Abutu, who confirmed the release yesterday, said the monarch had been reunited with his family.

“I can confirm to you that the monarch has been released from captivity. He also reunited with his family.

“However, he is presently receiving medical care in one of the facilities in the state as a result of the trauma he passed through”.
