Mikel Obi's Dad Pays Courtesy Visit To Enugu Police After Rescue From Kidnappers

Chief Michael Obi, father of Nigerian footballer, Mikel Obi on Tuesday, along with his son, Ebele Obi, paid a visit to the spokesperson for the Enugu State Police Command Headquarters, Ebere Amaraizu, after his successful rescue.

The man and his son paid the visit to felicitate with the State Police Football team, Crime Busters FC, on their recent victory.

It will be recalled that Chief Obi and his driver Ishaya John were rescued by the police inside a forest in Udi Local Government Area of the state on Monday afternoon.

Both men were abducted on their way from Jos, Plateau state, in a Toyota Jeep and taken to unknown destination through a thick forest.

The abductors made calls to the family to demand a ransom of N10million before the operatives acting on intelligence information swooped on them where a gun duel ensued which forced the criminals to abandon their victims inside the forest and they were immediately rescued.
