Men of the Benue State Police Command have confirmed the release of Chief Dennis Ekpe Ogbu, the Commissioner of Housing and Urban Development who was kidnapped on Sunday, December 4, alongside his aide and driver, along Ado-Otukpo road.

While the police launched a manhunt for the kidnappers for possible rescue of the trio, family sources told journalists on Monday night that the captors opened talks and demanded N5 million ransom.
