kidnapped ex-Super Eagles player, Christian Obodo regains freedom

A former Super Eagles midfielder, Christian Obodo, who was allegedly abducted on Sunday by unknown gunmen in Refinery Road, Effurun, Delta, has been released.

NAN reports that Obodo, 36, was abducted alongside a female friend at about 5:00 pm when he stopped to buy Banana near Ishaka Hotel.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Delta Command, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, who confirmed this to newsmen on Monday in Warri, said the incident was more of a case of robbery than kidnapping.

“They took him to somewhere to withdraw money from an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) and let him go on Sunday,” Onovwakpoyeya said.
