The former Senator representing Ekiti North Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Ayo Arise has regained freedom having spent about six days in the kidnappers’ den.

However, it was not clear whether any ransom was paid.
Arise was abducted at about 7.00 pm on Sunday between Okene and Lokoja while on his way to Abuja.
His abductors later contacted family members and associates and demanded a ransom of N80 million.
Arise was reportedly dropped at Ibillo town in Edo State.
His bosom friend, Hon. Funminiyi Afuye, confirmed the release of Arise to newsmen around 8.00 pm on Friday.
Afuye said: “I spoke with him (Arise) after his release and he told me that he was dropped inside the bush in Ibillo after they had trekked long distances.
“He said the kidnappers kept changing locations after he was kidnapped on Sunday so that they won’t be tracked down by security agencies.”
Afuye disclosed that Arise is in good health and thanked Nigerians for their concern while being held captive.
