PUNCH Newspapers reporter, Okechukwu Nnodim, who was abducted from his residence in Kubwa, Abuja, has been released, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

He was kidnapped alongside two other persons on February 3, 2021.

The journalist’s wife, Mrs Oluchi Nnodim, confirmed his release on Sunday, saying her husband returned home at midnight on Saturday.

She said her husband was released with two other boys who were abducted with him.

“My husband came back home around midnight but he is still sleeping. I am happy he is alive. I thank God for what He has done for me. He did not allow the enemy to laugh at me. I am grateful to God almighty for this miracle,” she said.

She thanked everyone who had contributed in ensuring the release of her husband for their efforts and prayed God to reward them.

Nnodim and the two others spent three days with the kidnapers.

The gunmen took Nnodim and the others away after demanding cash, which was not readily made available to them.

The kidnappers reportedly demanded a ransom of N10 million.
