Memunat Ogude, wife of Amkar Perm player Fegor Ogude, who was kidnapped in Warri last week Monday, has been released by her abductors.
She was reported to have gone out with her children but was declared missing by her husband after he got a call from the police that his car had been found in another town without his wife in it.
A tweet by U23 national team media officer Timi Ebikagboro confirmed the release on Sunday night.
In recent years, Nigerian footballers have come under attack of kidnappers. Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel’s father was kidnapped as well as midfieder Christian Obodo. Both of them regained their freedoms, unharmed.
