The kidnapped female reporter of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Mrs. Chidiebere Onyia, has regained her freedom.
Naija News gathered that Mrs. Onyia was released from captivity by her abductors on Sunday by 12noon.
Though it was not clear whether the family paid a ransom, her husband reportedly informed some of her colleagues in NTA that the woman had been set free.
Though the police were yet to confirm the development, Mrs. Onyia’s colleague, who spoke to TheNation, confirmed it.
She said: “She was set free by 12noon on Sunday. We are happy that she was released unhurt”.
Recall that she was picked up on her way home by the gunmen along Railway crossing in Woji Community of Obio-Akpor local government area of the State at about 8 pm on Tuesday after the NTA 7pm newscast.
Onyia was said to be conveying some of her colleagues in her private car to their destinations at about 6.30pm when the hoodlums blocked her vehicle at Woji area of Port Harcourt, isolated her and zoomed off.
Sources said the hoodlums fired many gunshots into the air forcing people to run to different directions before seizing their victim.
