Vanguard columnist, Dornu Kogbara, who was abducted by gunmen on August 30, 2015, has been released by her kidnappers. The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ahmad Mohammad, confirmed Kogbara’s release
through a press Statement made available to Elombah.com on Saturday morning.
She had been held for 11 days.
“Donu Kogbara has been freed by her abductors in the early hours of today, 4:00 a.m.,” said Rivers state police spokesman Ahmad Muhammad, without saying if a ransom had been paid.
“We can confirm she has been reunited with her family.” Kidnapping for ransom is common in Nigeria’s southern oil producing regions, where many criminal gangs operate.
