Adedayo Adewole, the son ex-minister of health, Professor Isaac Adewole, has regained his freedom from his abductors.
Recall that the younger Adewole was kidnapped on Tuesday, June 18, at about 6:00 pm from his farm at Iroko community in Akinyele local government area of Oyo state.
According to Nigerian Tribune, a competent source said that the farmer is already home with his relatives.
It was previously reported that some unknown gunmen on Tuesday, June 18, abducted Dayo Adewole, who is the son of the immediate past minister of health, Professor Isaac Adewole.
The military, police, other security agents and local hunters were on the trail of the kidnappers when the younger Adewole was abducted.
The abduction of his son compelled the Osun-born former minister to cut short his trip abroad.
Also previously reported by Jethric media was that the police arrested a nursing mother identified as Simeon Esther for allegedly being in possession of one AK47 rifle and 18 rounds of live ammunition.
The police said she concealed the firearm in a travel bag and intended to deliver it for a kidnap operation.
The suspect said she was promised N5,000 by her husband who asked her to deliver the bag to someone in Ogun state.
The suspect was on Wednesday, July 19, paraded at the Special Tactical Squad headquarters in Abuja alongside 37 other suspects who were allegedly involved in kidnapping, armed robbery, cattle rustling, car theft, and culpable homicide.
During the parade, police spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, said: “A mother and a wife, Simeon Esther was arrested in Ondo State for being in possession of one AK47 Rifle and 18 rounds of live ammunition.
“The operatives of Operation Puff Adder prevented her from getting to her destination. She was on a mission to deliver the gun to a gang in Ogun State. The gang had perfected plans to kidnap one of the senior citizens in Ogun State but we were able to nip the crime in the bud.
“They selected her because she is a nursing mother and they believed they will easily beat the prime eyes of our operatives and other security agencies but we intercepted her and also intercepted the expected end recipient of the weapon, thereby aborting the kidnap operation
