Barely 6 hours after Mrs. Akpezi Okpidi was kidnapped on Saturday morning in Ughelli town of Delta State, the woman who is believed to be daughter of a politician has regained her freedom.
We learnt that the woman was rescued around 6:50pm at an undisclosed riverine area, near Burutu council area of the state.
A family source disclosed that security operatives tracked two of the suspects to Bayelsa state, where they were apprehended.
Findings revealed that the duo are said to have died from gunshot wounds and a third suspect is on the run.
