#Kidnapping: Wife Of Former Governor’s Aide , House Help Regain Freedom

By Tahav Agerzua

The wife of Honorable Terwase Orbunde, former Chief of Staff to the Governor of Benue State, and her house help, who were abducted by gunmen in Makurdi last Friday evening have regained their freedom.

Mrs Abigail Kashimana Orbunde, and Ms Patience Ogute, regained their freedom Tuesday afternoon, April 16, 2024, after an undisclosed amount was paid as ransom to their abductors who had demanded N100 million.

The captives spent four harrowing days in captivity before their release.

They have reunited with some of their family members and taken to hospital for immediate medical attention.

The gunmen on Friday, April 12, 2024, attacked Honorable Orbunde, and abducted his wife and house help.

The attack took place along Mobile Barracks-Welfare Quarters Road in Makurdi, the state capital at about six pm.

The former Chief of Staff escaped with a gunshot on his right arm while the attackers whisked away his wife and cook.

Mrs Orbunde expressed gratitude to God for what she described as their deliverance and said they walked long distances in the bush without food and water.

Revealed that her husband, who is receiving treatment in hospital for gunshot wounds, thanked God and all those who stood with the family through prayers and financial contributions that have secured the release.
